Wildfire season is here: Do you know when to close your patio?

Overview

Summertime in Washington means that air quality here can be among the worst in the nation. Nearby wildfires and heavy winds often blow smoke into our cities, creating unhealthy air quality for everyone.

Health officers do have the authority to shut down outdoor events and spaces when the air quality reaches the unhealthy range.

We’ve created a toolkit to help you monitor air conditions in your area so you know when to close your patio for the day.
