Aerosol and droplet generation from singing &c

The paper Aerosol and Droplet Generation from Singing, Wind Instruments (SWI) and Performance Activities by  Public Health England (PHE) and the Environmental and Modelling Group of the Environment Agency (EMG) was considered at meeting #51 of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) on 13 August 2020, and published on 4 September. The SWI working group consensus reviewed the international evidence base and commissioned two research trials (PERFORM and SOBADRA) to investigate droplet and aerosol production in performance events. Using the knowledge obtained through these scientific enquiries, it considered the real-world implications for the management of these activities to minimise the risks associated with them.
