Smoke from Trinity County wildfires continue to present a serious health hazard for people living near the fires.
Trinity County officials say the air quality for some in the areas near smoke concentrations may reach hazardous levels.
People at greatest risk of experiencing symptoms due to smoke are those with respiratory diseases like asthma, those with heart disease, young children, and older adults.
These sensitive populations should stay indoors and avoid prolonged activity, while everyone else should limit heavy activity and time spent outdoors.
In order to help residents experiencing problems due to the smoky conditions, Trinity County officials have placed High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters at clean air shelters across the county.
