With the Covid-19 restrictions being loosened, outpatient surgery centers are ramping back up. HVAC conditions in outpatient areas can be tricky. Systems are often set to different parameters when the lights are off. Temperature fluctuations can cause an issue with humidity as well. The first thing I would check is the historical records for temperature/humidity after re-opening to make sure the sterile products are still safe.
