Skagit County warns of poor air quality

August 9, 2018

Smoke from wildfires elsewhere in the state is expected to reach Skagit County this week, according to a news release from the county.

This could cause air quality to become unhealthy for some groups, including children, pregnant women, people older than 65 or people with heart and lung disease, respiratory infections, asthma, diabetes or other health conditions, the release states.

County Public Health recommends limiting outdoor activity and keeping doors and windows closed in the event of poor air quality.

Updates on current air quality are available on the Northwest Clean Air Agency’s website.
