Air quality affects practices for fall sports

Air quality affects practices for fall sports”

Air quality levels have been declared unhealthy for sensitive groups, and the Southwest Clean Air Agency, which enforces air quality standards in Southwest Washington, extended an air quality advisory for all of Southwest Washington until Friday.

The air pollution advisory went into effect last week when huge swaths of the state reached near record-breaking temperatures.

DEQ and health officials said smoke from several nearby wildfires may also cause poor air quality in Medford, although monitors have shown mostly moderate conditions in Jackson County's largest city.

"But the good news is from the weekend onward, there's a good chance for a pattern shift, and we might have southwest winds to blow some of the smoke away and keep the British Columbia smoke away for a while", Dahmmapala said.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality upgraded the air in Blaine County to "moderate" Wednesday, after three days of considering it "unhealthy for sensitive groups".

When air quality is Unhealthy, people with heart or lung disease, smokers, children and the elderly should limit heavy or prolonged exertion and limit time spent outdoors.

The Department of Environmental Quality has guidelines for outdoor activities when air quality is affected based on an Air Quality Index that is color coded.
