Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Unit Takes on the Virus


The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is providing a helpful web page on the Estimated Natural Decay of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. You select a surface, enter the temperature and relative humidity and you get the estimated half-life of the virus.

Homeland Security’s Science and Technology branch is “partnering with CWMD (Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office) to develop a tool that is easily accessible could be used by Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) professionals to support risk assessment, cleaning and disinfection in accordance with guidance provided by CDC and EPA including Guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting: Public Spaces, Workplaces, Businesses, Schools, and Homes.”
