Air Quality Warnings Continue

Stay inside or wear a mask.

That’s the word from authorities as major wildfires continue to blanket the area with thick smoke promping air quality alerts ranging from “unhealthy for everyone” to “hazardous”.

Health officials say people with pre-existing respiratory conditions like asthma, and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) need to take extra precautions.

According to the National Weather Service the air quality isn’t expected to improve until at least Friday.
