“Moving the office outside” But no mention of microbes.

This article, about “Moving the Office Outside” talks about the energy savings and psychological benefits of creating outdoor office spaces.   Sadly microbes don’t get a mention, even though there’s an ever-growing body of work showing that indoor air is less healthy than outdoor air (both in terms of chemical composition and microbial makeup).
