Campus Closure Due to Air Quality: Health Resources

KIN community,

As may you know, the campus will be closed today and tomorrow due poor air quality as a result of the devastating fires in Northern California.

The following is a helpful website that allows you to monitor the air quality index in a given location. It also gives information on how the AQI may impact your health.

More importantly, on behalf of the Department of Kinesiology I want to acknowledge members of our campus community that have been directly impacted by the wildfires across the state. Please let us know if we can help out in any way.

For those that are able, there are many options available to help out those in need with financial contributions or donations of goods.

Linked below is a piece that offers some suggestions if you are inclined to help with the relief effort.
