FYI -- More info from the IMLS-funded REALM study. -----Original Message----- From: aserl-spec-collections <aserl-spec-collections-bounces+jburger=aserl.org [at] aserl-lists.org> On Behalf Of Zanish-Belcher, Tanya Sent: Tuesday, August 18, 2020 10:09 AM To: John Burger <jburger [at] aserl.org> Cc: Discussion list for topics of interest to Special Collections <aserl-spec-collections [at] aserl-lists.org> Subject: [aserl-spec-collections] REALM Project: Test 3 Results As part of the REALM project’s research, Battelle has conducted three natural attenuation studies to provide information on how long the virus may survive on materials common to archives, libraries, and museums. The studies were conducted by applying the virulent SARS-CoV-2 virus on five materials held at standard room temperature (68°F to 75°F) and relative humidity conditions (30 to 50 percent). Results show that after five days of quarantine in an unstacked configuration, the SARS-CoV-2 virus was not detected on the storage bag (flexible plastic) or the DVD. The storage container (rigid plastic), plexiglass, and the USB cassette all showed detectable virus at five days. Day five was the final timepoint tested.
