The Kittitas County Emergency Operations Center has received and supports a recommendation from the Kittitas County Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Larson with respect to air quality. The EOC strongly encourages adherence by all residents and organizations, especially those involving youth activities, to the following recommendations.
Kittitas County Public Health Department (KCPHD) recommends outdoor activities be cancelled during times when air quality is “very unhealthy” or “hazardous”. If possible, move the activity indoors or to a location with good or moderate air quality. This is especially important for people with asthma, respiratory infections, diabetes, lung or heart disease, or people who have had a stroke; and infants, children, older adults, and pregnant women.
