    Donations of respirators for classified staff who are working in this extremely hazardous air would also be appreciated. UO is not providing them, nor even N99 or N95 masks. Where’s the appreciation of essential personnel? Words only. Pfft.

      Word is the indoor air quality at my campus worksite is not good. I remember it being terrible in the 2017 smoke event, and this is far worse! If other buildings are like that, no one should be working on campus — the school should have shut as it does for ice events. When you are told only N95s will help in the smoke, and UO does not issue them? priceless…..

        at least in my building

        1) the HVAC system seems to be blowing smoke into the building
        2) some indoor sensor measurements made yesterday, with an instrument of questionable calibration, suggested the air quality inside the building was no better than outside (and possibly worse in some areas).

        Environmental Health and Safety seems to be asleep at the wheel or no one above them is aware enough to give them a directive

        My understanding is they are maximizing outside air intake to reduce covid risk — called ventilation — but now this is blowing in smoke. A good time to stay away!

    I was feeling overwhelmed while choking on this air, but then I got an email from Michael Schill telling me he appreciated how resilient we all are. It’s all good now. Who knew well-crafted emails could be so helpful????

      I kept looking for the “. . . and so I’ve decided not to cut everyone’s salary” but alas, no.

    There is zero accountability with this fund. Money could be going to fund cars and boats. This whole fund is a scam. Beware!

    Thanks, this worked for me, and I’ve now confirmed with SEIU Pres Stephanie Prentiss that anyone can donate.

    The web page says that SEIU members can donate, and staff. Can you confirm that we faculty members also can do so on that form?
