Air Quality Update
Updated September 23rd, 2020, 12pm:
Central Oregon’s AQI is currently in the “Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups” category. Strenuous activities are being minimized and camp hours are shortened. Please check your email and texts for more information if you are currently registered for a program.
Information on Air Quality:
Wildfires in Central Oregon and other areas may be impacting air quality today.
- We are monitoring the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Air Quality Index (AQI).
- For regional fire information, visit the Central Oregon Fire Info website. Fire information is available in English and Spanish.
Children are particularly sensitive to smoke because their respiratory systems are still developing.
Parents: Watch the smoke forecast and decide when to limit your child(ren)’s activities. If you do not wish for your child to spend time outdoors, please consider if the activity or program is the right choice for your family this week.
When air quality is between 1-100 (Good and Moderate), program coordinators will decide when and how to modify activities.
Measurements between 101-150 (Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups) will result in modified activities at reduced physical intensity and/or duration at the discretion of program coordinators.
Measurements above 150 (Unhealthy to Hazardous) will result in cancellation of all camps.
Measurements above 200 (Hazardous) will result in mandatory closure of all outdoor activities.
