The wildfire smoke blanketing north central North Dakota is causing poor air quality in the region. 

Jeffrey Verhey, MD, a pulmonary and critical care physician with Trinity Health, says people with respiratory conditions are advised to remain inside and keep their windows shut. 

He says a check of air quality index sites today showed North Dakota in the “very unhealthy” range. “Actually we were right on the cusp of being in the hazardous range,” he said.  “This isn’t good for people with lung troubles. I would advise not doing anything outside and stay in if at all possible.” 

He says a good strategy is to turn on central air, if you have it. Air purifier systems are also helpful.
