The Lab will be open for business on Monday, Sept. 14 and for the rest of the work week, barring a sudden deterioration in conditions due to brush fire activity. Air quality at the Lab and throughout the Los Angeles basin is expected to remain poor at least through Monday. Authorized personnel may come to work on Lab if they feel comfortable doing so. Please coordinate with your supervisor for questions regarding tasks that can only be completed on site.
The Bobcat Fire in the San Gabriel mountains remains unpredictable, with portions of Arcadia under evacuation orders as of Sunday, Sept. 13. Other foothill communities remain under evacuation warnings. Please follow the updates and guidance of local authorities, as conditions can change quickly.
