Parents and guardians of children in Baltimore County Public Schools, and other community stakeholders, have raised questions for months about air filtration systems in schools and whether indoor air is safe amid the coronavirus pandemic. One parent, frustrated with government responsiveness, decided to take matters into her own hands.

Although the county school system’s facilities management department has said that systems at all schools have been inspected to make sure they meet code, parent and atmospheric scientist Elizabeth Dahl argues that the code used is a “minimum standard” and that ventilation may not be sufficient to reduce the spread of diseases like COVID-19.
