WENATCHEE — Wenatchee and Leavenworth both have “unhealthy” air quality, as of Friday afternoon, according to the Chelan-Douglas Health District. This is due to the drifting smoke and ashes from wildfires in the area.

Wenatchee’s air quality was deemed “unhealthy for sensitive populations” on Friday morning and changed its status at about 3 p.m.

When air quality is in the unhealthy range, people are at risk of being affected by smoke, according to a health district press release.

The CDHD advises people to limit exposure to outside air and avoid outdoor physical activities and anything that would increase their breathing rate.

They recommend keeping windows closed and using the recycle mode on vehicle air conditioning. CDHD also stated that using N95 masks when going outside can reduce exposure to the pollutants in the smoke.
