Mitigate & Adapt: Air Quality

The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recommends going indoors when the air quality index is elevated to an unhealthy level. This reduces your exposure.

  • If you have air conditioning and can close your windows, this will further reduce your exposure.

  • Strenuous activity should be avoided outdoors.

  • wearing a mask if you have to go outside- especially for vulnerable people with pre-existing respiratory health conditions.
