are air filters required here?
Just about everyone I work with has been dealing sinus and respitory isses. I myself have had what seems to be a cold a that just won't go away. I don't feel sick I just can't seem to stop hacking and blowing my nose and when I go outside for extended periods of time everything clears up. I know the building I work in is very old and has no air filtration system. We also have a lot of dust and mice.

Also if I would like to know if air filters are required in some businesses in Pennslyvania.
