Abstract: The astonishing speed at which viral diseases such as Covid-19 can spread among people is a cause for concern when thinking about preparing for similar future pandemics. Depending on how individuals perceive their risk of disease transmission, their resulting behaviour can greatly minimize the spread of the disease among the people that they interact with. The aim of this study was to better understand people’s risk perception with regards to disease transmission in the built environment. Risk perception feedback obtained from a 7-day experiment with 10 participants was used for analysis together with the associated built environment features that the experiment took place. Looking at the feedback provided, this study provides strong evidence that there is a correlation between the built environment features and disease transmission risk.
