Update on air quality; Dish closure extended

According to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, air quality continues to be unhealthy in much of the region due to wildfire smoke, and these conditions are expected to continue through Monday.

“Northeasterly winds are forecast throughout the weekend, blowing smoke into the region, where a continuing high pressure system over Northern California is trapping it at ground level and causing significant air quality impacts,” the district reports.

Precautionary guidance for the Stanford community is available on the Environmental Health & Safety website.

The Dish and Matadero Trail are expected to remain closed through the weekend. Check The Dish website for any updates if conditions change.

Stanford Athletics is providing updates on its website regarding the status of scheduled athletic events.
