The air quality in the Bay Area continues to be pretty bad, and in fact, worse than yesterday’s dark, sunless day, according to PurpleAir.com. If at all possible, please stay indoors.
Ash can still be seen dropping from the sky as of this morning.
If you have the capacity to give, consider donating to Mask Oakland. Mask Oakland started during the previous years’ wildfires, donating and distributing N95 masks to those who are most vulnerable. Now, they are combining their experience with COVID-19 and wildfires.
Mask Oakland is donating N95 masks to homeless populations and organizations that work with unhoused populations. Our curbside neighbors are most at risk for smoke inhalation.
