Results from FaTIMA are presented, which is a recently developed, web-based front end to the CONTAM simulation engine, ContamX. We will introduce the model capabilities, user inputs, and results generated. We will then present the use of the tool in evaluating the relative effectiveness of various measures to reduce exposure to infectious aerosols including: wearing of face coverings, increasing ventilation, increasing filtration, and using portable air cleaners. This presentation will help modelers, building owners, and facility managers to understand and apply FaTIMA to their own situations. Revised version posted 9/21/2020.
