Air quality in Salt Lake County reaches red level

The air quality in Salt Lake County has reached red levels, according to the Utah Department of Environmental Quality.

UDEQ bumped the air quality level into the “red” zone Wednesday afternoon, meaning the following people should limit outdoor activities or heavy exercise:

  • People with lung disease, such as asthma
  • Children and older adults
  • People who are active outdoors
  • Everyone else should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.

Unhealthy, or “red,” is the third highest level of air pollution on the UDEQ’s scale. The department updates air quality levels hourly.
