UCLA Campus Air Quality Index is Currently UNHEALTHY Update #1

UCLA CAMPUS CONTINUES TO ONLY BE OPEN FOR ESSENTIAL OPERATIONS
 

While the Bobcat fire remains active and continues to pose no immediate threat to campus, we recognize the Air Quality currently on campus is considered unhealthy for all groups. Additionally, some members of our campus community live in evacuation areas or may be impacted by road closures. We ask everyone to put safety first. Those still performing essential functions on campus should assess their ability to safely commute to campus. UCLA continues to closely monitor the fire, and we are actively coordinating with the Los Angeles Fire Department. 

What you should know

Threat to campus: No immediate threat 

Air quality: Based on current data, air quality is considered unhealthy for all persons. All persons should limit prolonged outdoor work or heavy exertion. Outdoor recreational activity should be shortened or modified, and if possible, moved indoors, delayed, postponed, relocated or canceled. Employees performing outdoor work for more than one hour should be reassigned, or be provided N-95 respirators for voluntary use. Air quality levels could fluctuate throughout the day and we will update you on any changes. For more information and regular updates, visit: www.bso.ucla.edu
