September 2020 - Protect Your Health During Poor Air Quality Events

August 2020 - Wildfires and Outdoor Activities

  • Wildfire smoke can travel long distances causing poor or even hazardous air quality; placing your health at risk, even if you are not in the areas with wildfires.
  • Avoid air pollution by keeping your indoor air clean; remember face coverings used to slow the spread of COVID-19 offer little protection against the harmful air pollutants in wildfire smoke.
  • Know when to adjust plans for outdoor activities by paying attention to air quality reports and local guidance.
