What can you do if your local air health rating is poor?

You should try to limit your exposure when air quality is poor in your area. This includes staying indoors with the doors and windows shut and avoiding vigorous outdoor exercise. While anyone can feel the effects of air pollution, people who are sensitive to it, particularly people with heart or lung conditions such as asthma may experience worse symptoms15.
