Eneref Institute encourages governments to fund MERV-13 filtration installation throughout the U.S. public school system. To protect students from respiratory virus infection, MERV-13 air filtration is highly recommended by organizations responsible for school safety. Better filtration will not only prepare school districts for the SARSCoV-2 virus and for the next infectious disease but will create immediate Indoor Air Quality benefits for over 50 million students.

- A MERV-13 filter captures airborne respiratory viruses, such as the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
- MERV-13 filtration is 85% effective at capturing particles in the 1 to 3 micrometers size range— while the common MERV-8 filters only capture 20%.
- Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental risks to public health, as it can be as much as one hundred times higher than outdoor levels.
- One new infectious disease emerges in humans every four months.
