In view of the severity of the pollutants, make sure to follow preventive measures. On days with extremely poor air quality or if you have respiratory conditions, consider wearing a mask rated N95 or higher when going outside. These masks can help filter out fine particulate matter.
When air quality is poor, try to reduce your time spent outdoors, especially during high-pollution periods like rush hour or on days with poor air quality. If you need to exercise, try to do so indoors. Keep windows and doors closed when outdoor air quality is poor to minimize the entry of pollutants into your home or workplace. If you have respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), consult with your healthcare provider for a personalized plan to manage your condition during air pollution episodes.
