Air Quality Health Advisory for Wildfire Smoke
Issued for portions of central and southern Colorado
Issued at 9:00 AM MDT, Tuesday, October 6, 2020
Issued by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
Affected Area: Park, Teller, El Paso, Fremont, Custer and Pueblo counties. Locations include, but are not limited to Fairplay, Cripple Creek, Colorado Springs, Canon City, Westcliffe, and Pueblo.
Advisory in Effect: 9:00 AM MDT, Tuesday, October 6, 2020 to 4:00 PM MDT, Tuesday, October 6, 2020.
Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young, and the elderly. Consider limiting outdoor activity when moderate to heavy smoke is present. Consider relocating temporarily if smoke is present indoors and is making you ill. If visibility is less than 5 miles in smoke in your neighborhood, smoke has reached levels that are unhealthy.
Outlook: Widespread smoke transported from local wildfires has been observed across the advisory area Tuesday morning. Smoke will gradually decrease on Tuesday, with the slowest improvement expected in El Paso and Pueblo counties, including the Colorado Springs and Pueblo metro areas.
