WASHINGTON COUNTY – Southwest Utah Public Health Department has issued an Air Quality Advisory:
This is a naturally occurring situation. Recent high winds have blown in dust, which remains temporarily suspended in the air.
Current local air-quality readings from Utah’s Department of Environmental Quality indicate that the air is “unhealthy for sensitive people.”
If you have asthma, COPD, or other respiratory problems, then avoid going outside unnecessarily, especially for strenuous activity. Follow your asthma management plan.
With expected weather changes and possible precipitation in the next couple of days, things should clear up soon.
