Air Quality Reminders

MESSAGE FROM MARIN COUNTY PUBLIC HEALTH OFFICER

As a reminder, air quality in Marin County continues to be effected by the fire in Butte County. The air quality in the Bay Area has remained at red levels (unhealthy) or higher throughout the weekend. These ongoing conditions have also contributed to the progressive deterioration of air quality throughout our community inside and outside.

Guidance continues to be:
 
  • Outdoor physical activity should be limited or avoided entirely.
  • Keep windows and doors closed as much as possible.
  • If air conditioning is available, set it to recycle indoor air.
  • Students with asthma should follow their asthma action plans and keep their quick-relief medicine close at hand.

Additional information can be found at the Marin County Health and Human Services  website  and  AirNow.gov .

Schools Fire Relief Fund
Many have inquired about how to help the victims of the Butte County wild fire. The Butte County Office of Education created the  Schools Fire Relief Fund  to provide a one-stop location where individuals or organizations can provide support directly to schools in Butte County.
