This Google sheets page is a collection of resources related to
transmission and prevention of COVID-19
with focus on airborne routes i.e. inhalable aerosols (& ballistic droplets)

• This page was compiled as a resource as people are searching for credible information in the midst of the global pandemic.
• Most people are legitimately trying to do the right thing for public health and are often craving reliable information on these topics.
• Links are not necessarily comprehensive, but provide a few examples of additional reading and evidence for individuals who want to dig a little deeper.
• I've done my best to include some examples of high-quality, non-partisan information (i.e. interviews with top-quality scientists), but I don't promise every line in all the articles is perfect.
• The resources here are focused on the United States and in English, but I am happy to add other high-quality resources if you let me know.
• This is meant to be a living, updated document.
• If you know of other good resources for a general-audience, or see any major problems, please let me know.
• Also suggest other science papers/evidence to include.
A select few (not all!) twitter handles for selected high-level scientists you can trust (focused only on aerosols/airborne spread of disease/ventilation/etc; alpha by Twitter handle):
