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. I am not sure what is the cause here so if anyone knows about the effects on air quality on health your help would be greatly appreciated. Also if I would like to know if air filters are required in some businesses in Pennslyvania.

I don't know about PA, but here in VA they're mandatory for new buildings and most older buildings have them installed b/c of the symptoms you have. I would get with my higher up's and see about having this installed, if everyone has these problems, for the betterment of the workplace.
