Swedish term or phrase: vistelsezon
It is irritating to understand the feeling of a word but not to be able to think of the word in ones own language.

Anyway, "vistelsezon" is basically the place where people are. I am trying to think of a more eloquent way to put this.

Sentence given:
"Föroreningar i fyllnadsbjälklag utgör ingen risk för spridning till inomhusmiljön i vistelsezon."
