Summer Air Quality and Your Health

kids

Summer in Utah has arrived, bringing warm sunny days, hikes, and other outdoor enjoyments. At this time, air quality can become a health concern for many Utahns, especially children and those with asthma. These resources can help you protect your health during allergy and ozone season:

Allergies and Pollen Counts

If you suffer from allergies that may trigger an asthma attack, be aware of the pollen counts in Utah. Learn more about allergies and asthma here. Click here for current pollen counts in Utah.

 

Air Quality Index

The air quality index (AQI) gives information on current and forecasted air quality conditions. The AQI will help you understand what your local air quality conditions are and what that means for your health. Click here for current AQI conditions in Utah.
