University of Surrey to help protect schools from airborne COVID-19 transmission

The CO-TRACE project – which has been awarded nearly £1million by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council – will see Surrey’s Global Centre for Clean Air Research (GCARE) join forces with the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London.

The project intends to produce easy-to-use practical guidance and equip school staff with tools to make safe and informed decisions.

The CO-TRACE team has recently made its COVID-19 Assistance for Schools Tool (CAST) available for all. CAST helps teachers, school leaders and site managers manage the risk of COVID-19 transmission in school environments, based on current government guidance.
