On Aug. 31, the City of Novato opened a Clean Air Center at the Margaret Todd Senior Center on Aug. 31 located at 1560 Hill Road. It will remain open until the smoke clears. This Clean Air Center will help to protect the health and well-being of those who are continually exposed to very unhealthy air quality due to wildfire smoke and unable to shelter in their residence.
Those visiting the Clean Air Center will be required to wear a mask and practice social distancing. If you come with other members of your household, please stay within that group and distance from other individuals or groups. Individuals showing symptoms of COVID-19 (i.e., fever, cough, shortness of breath), should contact their medical provider for alternative options.
Visitors are welcome to enjoy this air-conditioned facility with access to drinking water, restrooms and seating. If you have or someone you know has health issues that could be exacerbated by unhealthy air quality and you are unable to access shelter, please visit the Margaret Todd Senior Center. If you have a service pet, they will be able to accommodate as a respite area. Please make sure you have any necessary papers to show your animal is qualified as a service pet. Other animals are not permitted at this time.
