As the air outside is still very unhealthy, and we begin to enter into the Fall, 2020 continues to bring on an unimaginable set of challenges, and these last few weeks are no exception. Just as we’re trying to get used to distance-learning regiments, limited opportunities for physical activity, and continuing to mind our latest Stay-At-Home guidelines, the raging wildfires and overall air quality have brought on a whole new set of personal tests for us. The South Coast Air Quality Management District has warned that most of our region will be affected by smoke with high concentrations of fine-particle pollution in areas closest to the Bobcat and El Dorado fires for quite some time. The Air Quality Management District, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have compiled a list of safety tips and advice to stay safe right now. Experts are also advising that we continue to stay indoors if possible, keeping our windows and doors closed, and to be prepared for local public health alerts.
