Spare the Air July 2-6

Posted On: July 1, 2024

Check the air quality in your neighborhood through Air Now or Purple Air.

Take precautions if your air quality is orange – unhealthy for sensitive groups)

Have flexibility in your schedule?
Even if the forecast is Orange (unhealthy for sensitive groups), there may be times during the day when air quality is OK for outdoor activities. Ozone is often lower in the morning. Check current air quality to see if now is a good time for you to be active outdoors.

Can’t change your schedule?
People with lung disease such as asthma, children and teens, older adults, and people who are routinely active outdoors for six or more hours a day: Reduce your exposure by choosing less strenuous activities or shortening the amount of time you are active outdoors.
Everyone else: Enjoy your outdoor activities.
