The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Action Day for Particulates.

WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western
Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties

WHEN...400 PM Tuesday September 22 to 400 PM Wednesday September

IMPACTS...Action Day for Particulates is now in effect for the
seven-county Denver-Boulder metropolitan area. Requests to limit
driving of non- ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in
effect until at least 4 PM Wednesday, September 23, 2020.
Wildfire smoke from the Middle Fork, Mullen, and Cameron Peak
wildfires is expected to increase across northern parts of the
Front Range region early Wednesday. Fine particulate
concentrations in the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category will
be most likely for Larimer and Weld Counties, including Ft.
Collins and Greeley, but could spread southwards towards Denver
later Wednesday morning into Wednesday afternoon. For health
recommendations, please refer to the Front Range Air Quality
Forecast below.  For areas included in this advisory that are not
expected to exceed the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG) air
quality designation, we request that activities, such as driving
non-ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel), be reduced to lessen the
impacts on neighboring air quality. Additional air pollution in
this region may directly worsen air quality or contribute to
precursors which may also adversely affect air quality.  For
Colorado air quality conditions, forecasts and advisories, visit:

HEALTH INFORMATION...Increasing likelihood of respiratory symptoms
in sensitive individuals, aggravation of heart or lung disease and
premature mortality in people with cardiopulmonary disease and
