Recent Rain Has Helped With Smoke And Bad Air Quality, But It’s Still Anticipated To Be A Concern Going Forward

The Oregon Health Authority offers advice to individuals and school districts that are attempting to determine what degree of exposure is considered to be safe. Even though the rain has finally brought some relief, concerns over how to respond to the poor quality of the air will only become more pressing in the years to come.
