The American Academy of Family Physicians says you should take these precautions when air quality is poor:
- Check the Air Quality Index (AQI) for your area and limit time outdoors when the rating is above 100.
- If you do have to be outdoors, do so during the early morning or after the sun sets.
- When air quality is poor, avoid rigorous activity and heavier breathing to prevent inhaling more pollutants.
