UPEI faculty call for further investigation after report finds need for major upgrades

A recent air quality report for the University of Prince Edward Island has found that several spaces on campus are in need of upgrades. CBC reports that while most classrooms were found to meet ventilation requirements, 16 classrooms have air quality problems such as mechanical ventilation systems or reliance on open windows. The UPEI Faculty Association is calling for other spaces on campus to be evaluated. “There’s probably problems in other places that they haven’t tested, in other workspaces,” said faculty association president Michael Arfken. UPEI has also extended online education until at least February 27th, citing the province’s pandemic circumstances.
