Smokey conditions continue
The Siskiyou County Health Officer, Dr. Stephen Kolpacoff is advising residents to take precautions and avoid voluntary outdoor activities when the smoke level is unhealthy. Schools, recreation districts and other organizations that operate outdoor sports programs are being advised to voluntarily cancel or postpone outdoor activities when air quality is unhealthy. Smoky conditions can quickly change throughout the day. It’s very important for isolated residents to have neighbors or family check on them to make sure they are protecting themselves from increased smoke exposure.
