Wildfires raged throughout the western United States, razing hectares of forested land in Washington, Oregon, California and beyond. The smoke drifted into the Agassiz-Harrison area and has caused health advisories and air quality issues throughout southern B.C.
Fraser Health advises those who have certain health conditions, especially respiratory issues, to stay indoors while conditions persist.
People with chronic health conditions or with COVID-19 may be affected more than usual when conditions are smoky. Those who are vulnerable or who work with vulnerable populations can find advice on minimizing risk through the @CDCofBC. Learn more: https://t.co/8GfrUypOHv
