Dear Benicia Community,
Solano County Public Health recommends the following:
For any school in Green and Yellow zones, we recommend schools remain open as there is little health concern for staff and students.
For any school in the Orange and Red zones, we recommend schools remain open and limit outdoor activity. Staff and parents should be advised to determine if they or their child should remain home for health concerns.
For any school in the Purple and Maroon zones, we recommend schools be closed. Staff and students should remain indoors if possible.
Schools should be prepared for asthma exacerbations by making sure rescue inhalers are stocked and available.
As always we will continue to monitor the air quality and update our Benicia community as needed.
