Washoe County Health District Issues Green Burn Code

Posted: Updated:

The Washoe County Health District says this morning's wood burning color code has changed from RED to GREEN due to an improvement in weather conditions.

It is okay to use your fireplace, wood stove, or pellet stove.

Rapidly changing winter weather patterns mean that the Air Quality Index (AQI) may also change between Good and Moderate at times meaning unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged or heavy exertion.
