The COVID-related minimum recommendation for central air filtration is a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) rating of 13. The Chase Center current MERV filter rating is 15 (scale goes from 1 to 16); which exceeds the NBA and CDC recommendation of MERV13 filter ratings.
The State of California recommends four air exchanges an hour for indoor spaces. Chase Center can achieve up to four air exchanges per hour and will often times exceed the minimum requirements throughout the arena.
Chase Center has the capability to use 100 percent outside air which is the cleanest possible air.
Being a newly built arena, Chase Center already has the newest ventilation infrastructure in place that allows us to do all of the above.
Chase Center will also have portable HEPA filters (MERV rating of >16) on hand for rapid deployment as needed. Portable HEPA filters provide hospital grade air purification.
