****COVID TESTING IN WOODFORDS CANCELED TODAY ****

We've made the decision to close the Woodfords/Markleeville site today due to air quality concerns (Woodfords' AQI is 203). Our team will be contacting and rescheduling the 15 participants who have appointments.

As most of us are aware, California is experiencing record-high heat temperatures and a number of wildfires throughout the state. The safety of our participants and staff is our highest priority, and we're monitoring air quality closely using the Air Quality Index. Verily's protocol for site AQ thresholds is as follows:

  • 0-100: Safe for sites to operate
  • 101-150: Participants and staff with asthma, CV issues, etc. encouraged to stay home
  • 150-200: All staff (including non-HCPs) must wear N95 masks while onsite. HCPs must make sure that they don't wear N95 masks used in the hot zone outside of the hot zone. (Switch masks at donning/doffing station.) N95 masks used outside of the hot zone can safely be reused by an individual. Hot zone N95 masks should not be reused.
  • 200+: Site closure goes into effect as conditions are deemed unsafe?
