UPDATE: Outdoor Air Quality Alert for June 8

Dear Members of the Rutgers Community,

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and the National Weather Service anticipate slightly better smoke conditions for tomorrow, Thursday, June 8. The Air Quality Index (AQI) is forecasted to be Orange, or Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups.

Individuals should limit outdoor activity, consider wearing a KN95 mask or better when outdoors, and refrain from strenuous activity. More information can be found at https://www.airnow.gov/sites/default/files/2021-03/air-quality-guide_pm_2015.pdf

Please know that the university will continue to monitor our air systems to assure maximum operation to limit outdoor air as much as possible.

The university status remains unchanged. Individuals scheduled to be on campus should do so. Supervisors with employees who are scheduled to work outdoors should make alternative assignments and arrangements for indoor work. Outdoor summer programs should modify their schedules as appropriate and refrain from outdoor activities.

Stay safe,

Antonio Calcado
Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer
