8/15/17: Kitsap County is back in the "green." There is no smoke on the horizon and the air quality is expected to be good all week. Local air quality can change from day-to-day or even hour to hour. For the most up-to-date information, visit www.pscleanair.org for current air quality conditions and forecasts.

08/03/17:  Due to the smoke from British Columbia wildfires, Kitsap County air quality continues to exhibit levels of particulate matter that are unhealthy for sensitive groups. The Health District strongly urges individuals in these sensitive groups to limit prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion:

  • People with lung disease such as asthma, or heart disease
  • Children and older adults, and
  • Anyone experiencing symptoms when outdoors

Prolonged outdoor exertion means any activity that makes one breathe slightly harder than normal, over several hours, such as working in the yard for part of a day.  Heavy exertion means intense outdoor activities that cause one to breathe hard, such as jogging.

If you have questions or concerns about your child participating in outdoor sports or activities, please contact your child's physician.

Those with lung or heart diseases should contact their health care provider if their symptoms worsen.

Kitsap Public Health will continue to monitor the air quality reports and if air quality worsens, we will provide information on this page, and through our Facebook page.
