Portable air cleaners and masking can dramatically reduce the number of COVID-19 droplets and aerosols, a new report published on Friday suggests.

Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducted multiple experiments in which high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) cleaners ere used in a conference and people wear face coverings.

On their own, the air cleaners reduced the exposure of particles spread by an infected person about 65 percent.

However, when combined together, it reduced the exposure to coronavirus-infected aerosols by 90 percent.

HEPA air cleaners consist of a filter that removes almost all particles from the air and fan to draw air through the filter.

They offer a way to boost
