Default Air Quality Alerts

There is an air quality alert out until 9pm. How many of you pay attention to these alerts? Do you keep your the kids inside or only take them out for a short time?

What location is this at? I think usually unless the alert specifically informs you to stay indoors that you can go out. BlackCat previously posted this:

Each category corresponds to a different level of health concern. The six levels of health concern and what they mean are:
"Good" AQI is 0 - 50. Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk.
"Moderate" AQI is 51 - 100. Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people. For example, people who are unusually sensitive to ozone may experience respiratory symptoms.
"Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups" AQI is 101 - 150. Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.
"Unhealthy" AQI is 151 - 200. Everyone may begin to experience some adverse health effects, and members of the sensitive groups may experience more serious effects. .
"Very Unhealthy" AQI is 201 - 300. This would trigger a health alert signifying that everyone may experience more serious health effects.
"Hazardous" AQI greater than 300. This would trigger a health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.

This was in a big portion of MN yesterday. The alert was due to the Canadian wildfires.
The levels fell under the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” which includes children.

It blew right past me. I’m in northern MN (Approx 100 miles south of the Canadian border) and we’ve had no concerns about air quality here.

Hoping it clears up for you soon!
