- Unhealthy air people with lung disease (such as asthma ) and children and older adults should limit or avoid outdoor activities
- Unhealthy air for sensitive groups - people with lung disease (such as asthma) and children and older adults should limit or avoid outdoor activities
- Good air - no precautions
Here's a link to our Division of Air Quality Website that explains it more. I'm glad I checked the site today, because the air looks terrible, but the tiny particles in the air that can cause damage to the lungs are still in the "good" category. It can be a little confusing. But it's good to know that the hazy days aren't going to cause any problems to me right now. Some days we have a hard enough time as it is just breathing. I don't need dirty air making it worse.
It's looks like we're in the green zone today, so I think I'll take a walk during lunch to stay awake. Then it's back to the computer!
