GLENN COUNTY, Calif. - Glenn County is warning its residents of poor air quality conditions due to surrounding North State fires.

The County's Public Health Department and Air Pollution Control District said the smoke is expected to vary during the next several days depending on the wind and intensity of the fires.

Sensitive persons,  such as the young, the elderly, pregnant women, smokers and those with respiratory conditions, are at great risk of more aggravated symptoms like coughing, watery or itchy eyes and difficulty breathing.

N-95 masks are available at the Public Health office in Willows for those sensitive persons.

Recommended during poor air pollution periods:

• Limit outdoor exertion by children, students and adults
• Reduction in travel including unnecessary driving
• Avoid the use of non-HEPA paper face mask filters which are not capable of filtering extra fine particulates
• Check or replace air conditioner filters

Those who may experience questionable or severe symptoms should seek professional medical advice and treatment.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
