Wildfires in British Columbia, Canada, have caused poor air quality and high health risks around the city of Kamloops.
The dominant pollutant - posing the biggest health threat on the short-term - is fine particulate matter (PM2.5).
We recommend avoiding the area when doable, and if not try to limit exposure to air pollution as much as possible. You can always check outdoor air quality, pollutant information & live maps on our website.
