Air Quality Guidance for Schools & Child Care Facilities

The color-coded table provides physical activity recommendations based upon the forecasted level of air pollution, the intensity of the activity, and the duration of the physical activity.  The colors on this guidance document are similar to the MPCA AIQ publications.  Use of this table by school personnel and child care staff is voluntary.

The following recommendations for alternatives to outdoor activities on days when the air quality is poor were created by a group of health organizations, school officials and the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (California).
