REALM Project Shares New Findings About the Virus' Survival on Building Materials

OCLC announced the latest results from the Reopening Archives, Libraries, and Museums (REALM) Project, which “is designed to generate scientific information to support the handling of core library, museum, and archival materials as these institutions resume operations and reopen to the public.” The new results, from its sixth test, cover how long SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, remains active on five common archive, library, and museum building materials. After 2 days, the virus “was no longer detectable on the brass and marble. After six days, virus was not detected on the glass, laminate, and powder-coated steel.”

View the results of the first five tests here.

For more information, read the press release.
