Potential aerosolisation of SARS-CoV-2 is of critical importance in healthcare settings. During medical care many procedures are performed that are potentially 'aerosol generating' - although the flux, dispersion, and spread of this aerosol is often unquantified or unknown. The aim of this study is to quantify the flux, concentration, size distribution, and persistence of aerosol generated by a set of clinical procedures (across 5 clinical specialties), and assess heterogeneity between operator, equipment, and room.
