Continue to limit the amount of time you’re spending outdoors and don’t push yourself to limit the amount of wildfire smoke you are taking in. You may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. If you suffer from lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, you may be more sensitive to the effects of wildfire smoke.
