FREE KN95 MASK INFO:

***Oregon Department of Agriculture is providing  a limited supply  of KN95 NIOSH approved masks for agriculture workers who are having to work out in the smoke at this time (and for COVID protection).  The masks that were distributed previously are a looser fit design and may not be as effective for smoke as NIOSH certified masks. Currently there is a limited supply of masks being distributed by County Extension offices who are in impacted areas (so not all counties).  The best way for people to find out if there are any available is to call their County Extension office.  Some counties have distributed to partner organizations already.***

If possible, reduce outdoor physical activity during work. If you need to work outdoors, wear a mask that filters at least 95% of airborne particles (N95/KN95 masks).   Cloth masks will not offer adequate protection.  A tight fit is important for protection from smoke and particulates.  Facial hair can interfere with effectiveness.   Even after the smoke lifts this level of protection is required as ash and particulates will remain.
