The San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District said Thursday that air quality in the county is being impacted by smoke from the fires burning throughout California.
When smoke in the air is obvious, people should avoid strenuous outdoor activity and remain indoors as much as possible, the agency said, adding that if you see smoke or ash, use common sense.
The precautions are especially important for people with respiratory illness or heart conditions, the very young and the elderly, as they are the most vulnerable, the ACPD said.
According to the ACPD, air quality is rated moderate in Nipomo, Atascadero, San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles and the Carrizo Plain. Air quality is considered good in Morro Bay.
