The San Mateo County Community College District is actively monitoring air quality in the Bay Area and will provide regular updates to our community. To ensure accurate assessments, we rely on a combination of air quality data sources, including AirNow, PurpleAir, and IQ Air, to calculate an average reading.
The Air Quality Index (AQI) for Skyline College stands at 167, while the College of San Mateo has an AQI of 150. The air quality is deteriorating at both locations, and has now reached the “Unhealthy” category on the AQI scale, posing health risks for everyone present at these sites.
College of San Mateo and Skyline College
All current outdoor classes/events at CSM and Skyline College need to be curtailed, and all scheduled outdoor classes/events are cancelled for the evening of September 19th, 2023 due to poor air quality. All indoor instruction will continue as scheduled.
Athletic Centers will message their fitness communities, and essential workers on site shall modify their work assignments per supervisor’s discretion for health/safety.
Cañada College remains in the “Moderate” at 86. All indoor and outdoor activities/operations will continue as planned.
We will update the campus communities before 7:00am tomorrow September 20, 2023
