Here is an article from MINNPOST, who interviewed Michael Osterholm about COVID-19 and the Arts.
A quote from the article:
“Osterholm emphasized that air, not the environment (meaning surfaces we touch), plays the key role in transmitting COVID-19. We know that droplets can carry the virus, but it can also be in particles suspended in the air. Osterholm compared this to dust floating in a sunlit window, or the perfume you smell four aisles over in a department store, or the smoke from a smoker some distance way. “Those are aerosols you’re smelling,” he said.”
