Seek Medical Attention

If your symptoms because serious, seek medical attention. High exposure to PM2.5 can lead to hospitalizations and increase the risk of death. 

Steps to Reduce Exposure

  • Limit duration and intensity of outside physical activity. 
  • Stay inside with cleaner indoor air: 
    • Close windows and doors, unless it is too hot to maintain safe temperatures. 
    • Don't add to indoor air pollution, such as cigarette smoking or burning candles. 
    • Filter indoor air through an HVAC system, HEPA portable air cleaner, or DIY box fan filter (You Tube Video by Colville Tribes Air Quality Program).  
    • Set air conditioning to recirculate. 
  • If unable to maintain clean air at home, go elsewhere for cleaner air such as a friend's place, public space, or unimpacted area. 
  • If you must be outside, wear a properly fitted, NIOSH-approved particulate respirator, such as an N95 mask.
