That is, education on vaping that isn't judgmental, that doesn't gloss over the allure and doesn't simply tell young people they are wrong. It seems like we are moving away from the 'Just Say No' message that failed our society with other substance abuse."

    La calidad del aire en el Condado de Sonoma ha permanecido pobre. Actualmente, la condición del aire se encuentra mayormente en la categoria ‘roja’, lo cual significa poco sano. Debido a los incendios activos y los cambios de los patrones del aire la calidad del aire puede variar impredeciblemente por varios dias, pero el pronóstico actual del tiempo predice cambios a mediado de la semana. Estamos esperanzados que la condición del aire mejore despues de estos cambios ambientales. Este aviso de salud permanecera vigente hasta que la calidad del aire mejore de manera significante y consistente.

    Los niños, ancianos y las personas con problemas respiratorios tales como asma, enfermedades pulmonares o cardíacas, tienen el mayor riesgo de sufrir efectos dañinos al estar expuestos a esta situación.

    Air quality conditions in Sonoma County remain poor. Currently, air quality is mostly in the “red”, unhealthy range. Due to the active wildfires and changing wind patterns our air quality may vary unpredictably however, current weather forecasts predict changes in the middle of this week. We are hopeful that air quality conditions will improve after the weather changes. This health advisory will remain in effect, until the air quality significantly and consistently improves. 

    Children, the elderly, and those with respiratory conditions such as asthma, lung disease and heart disease are most at risk for harmful impacts.

    As much as possible everyone should limit their time outdoors especially if the smell of smoke is present. Protect your health by following these healthy habits:
