Dr. Shikha Jain, a physician who treats cancer patients and the founder of the COVID-19 advocacy group IMPACT, recommends CO2 monitors for gauging risk while traveling or in social situations. “I use CO2 monitors to help see the air quality around me and decide whether I feel safe removing my mask,” she says. “They can definitely be utilized in concert with other risk mitigation strategies.”
