respiratory illness should follow their physicians advice for
dealing with high levels of air pollution

During periods of stagnant air... state air quality agencies
highly recommend that no outdoor burning occur and that

stagnant air can hold pollutants close to the ground... where
people live and breathe. Check with your local burn agency for
any current restrictions in your area
