We will cover lighting strategies responsive to COVID-19 and other possible viruses, lighting for circadian benefit for daytime and shift work, and shift-workers families, lighting for psychological benefit (different from physiological/circadian lighting although many manufacturers are muddying the two), lighting metrics for glare mitigation, and how daylighting plays into all of these.
