With the arrival of cooler weather, and the drier indoor air it causes through the effect of forced-air heating, we are now seeing a sharp increase in COVID-19 rates in Canada, Europe, and the northern United States.

In the article linked below, Doctor Golemi-Kotra of York University explains how reduced humidity affects the spread of COVID-19. She also recommends the use of humidifiers to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

Based on her recommendation I believe it is worthwhile exploring the use of humidifiers to reduce the COVID fatality rate in long-term care.

With the impact of a COVID vaccine still several months away, any measure that might reduce COVID fatalities in the interim would be a valuable tool to have.
