Smoke Advisory Extended
Mesa County Public Health has extended its wildfire smoke advisory.
I'm sure you've noticed the persistent haze hanging around the Grand Valley. On Monday, Mesa County Public Health issued a wildfire smoke advisory due to smoke from the Cache Creek wildfire. That along with the Red Canyon, Cabin Lake, Lake Christine, and the regions on fire have western Colorado in a haze.
That haze can be more than a nuisance for those with allergies, heart disease, or respiratory illness. Babies, young children, and the elderly are encouraged to remain inside while the advisory is in effect.
A few things to remember...1-Avoid heavy outdoor exertion such as running or other forms of exercise during advisories. 2- Keep your indoor air clean and stay indoors. 3-Keep the fresh-air intake closed and the filter clean in your AC. 4-Don’t rely on dust masks for protection.
