Air Quality Alert issued in San Luis Obispo County due to wildfires

Posted: Updated:

San Luis Obispo County health officials say air quality in the county is being impacted by smoke from the wildfires in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.  

As of Thursday morning, the impacts were greatest along the coast from the Oceano Dunes/Nipomo area to Morro Bay. However, health officials say air quality could deteriorate rapidly in other parts of the county as the smoke plume moves inland.

County residents should expect skies to be hazy and fine particulate concentrations to be higher than normal until the fires are extinguished.

When smoke is in the air, health officials say people should avoid strenuous outdoor activity and stay indoors as much as possible, especially those with respiratory illnesses and heart conditions.
