Wildfire smoke has been in the air and in the news, and an Environmental Protection Agency monitor shows Monday air quality in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area is at the mid-level of the "being unhealthy for sensitive groups" category, impacting those with heart or lung disease.
For those groups, the Douglas County Health Department recommends:
- Choose less strenuous activities (like walking instead of running) so you don’t breathe as hard.
- Shorten the amount of time you are active outdoors.
- Be active outdoors when air quality is better.
