Chelan County Air Quality

Air Quality Advisory Tuesday 1 pm

Smoke in some communities today…

Leavenworth “Unhealthy for Sensitive Populations”
Chelan “Moderate”
Wenatchee “Good”

When air quality is in the unhealthy for sensitive populations range people with asthma, lung or heart disease and children may experience health effects. Outdoor activities should be limited by this group. Everyone else should limit prolonged exertion. Limit time outdoors. If you are having significant problems talk to your health care provider

When air quality is in the moderate range 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.
