This dataset encompasses the results of a series of controlled experiments conducted at the University of Utah's Industrial Hygiene Research Laboratory between November 2021 and November 2022. It includes data from tests assessing aerosol containment and surface contamination using the U-COVER device. The dataset details the effectiveness of different device designs (D1A, D1B, D2) in containing salt aerosols under various conditions, including with and without exhaust ventilation. Measurements were conducted using GRIMM Model 1.109 Portable Aerosol Spectrometers and analyzed for particle size distributions and concentrations. The findings provide insights into the protective capabilities of the U-COVER device in medical settings, with implications for healthcare worker safety."
