Region Sees Deteriorating Air Quality

MEDFORD, Ore. — In parts of Southern Oregon and Northern California, the air quality is beginning to become a concern.

The Medford DEQ Office puts our area’s air quality in the moderate category. Grants Pass is also in the moderate range, but the air in Klamath Falls is currently unhealthy for sensitive groups.

Those at risk include people with breathing problems, the elderly, and young children. They say the general public should not be affected by the current conditions. In Lakeview, the conditions have become unhealthy to everyone.
