North Bay Fire Update
As of October 19, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) has indicated air quality is now at healthy levels in San Mateo County. We will continue to monitor BAAQMD’s air quality guidance to assure that we take every precaution necessary for staff and residents to remain safe.
Our thoughts are with our neighbors to the north who are experiencing ongoing devastation. Please visit the State website californiavolunteers.org to see how you can support people directly impacted by the North Bay fires.
The Health System has sent volunteers and is involved in the regional mutual aid response, including mental health workers, ambulances and disaster supplies, assessing our hospital and skilled nursing facility bed availability to support those who have been evacuated, and coordinating on a future need for environmental health staff.
