As the smoke continues to pose a threat, please remember the below tips to make sure you keep your eyes and lungs safe from hazardous air quality. Eye Protection: - When possible, avoid prolonged exposures outside. When you can't avoid it, safety glasses are recommended to block particles in the air. - Minimize contact wear to avoid the potential for particles to become trapped between the lens and your eye. - Use artificial tears periodically to reduce any irritation, which will help you avoid itching and further irritating your eyes. If you need artificial tears, utilize the S.I.C.K. program at the pharmacy on base. - Cold compresses with a clean damp cloth can also help alleviate irritation. - Schedule an appointment with optometry if symptoms do not subside or become more severe. Mask Safety: Per CDC recommendation, remember to avoid using a mask in the below instances: - Children younger than 2 years old. - Anyone who has trouble breathing or is unconscious. - Anyone who is incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance
