The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has lifted an air quality caution for Teton County. Due to a significant reduction in wildfire smoke impacts, DEQ said air quality in the county is currently “good” and forecast to range from good to moderate within the affected area.
At the moderate level, air quality is acceptable, but people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution may experience health impacts. Those people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion.
