HEALTH INFORMATION...Public Health Recommendations: If smoke is
thick or becomes thick in your neighborhood you may want to remain

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.
