Smoke levels will vary throughout the day in some communities…
Wenatchee and Leavenworth “Moderate”
Chelan “Unhealthy for Sensitive Populations”
When air quality is in the moderate range most people will not be impacted. Some people with underlying conditions like asthma, lung diseases or heart disease, the very young or very old will experience health effects. Limit time outdoors and limit physical exertion to very short periods until air quality improves, if you are having health effects.
When air quality is in the unhealthy for sensitive populations range people with asthma, lung or heart disease and young children may experience health effects. Outdoor activities should be limited by this group. Limit time outdoors. If you are having significant problems talk to your health care provider. The general public is not likely to be affected.
