Environment Canada says wildfire smoke will likely impact parts of B.C. over the next day or two.
The agency issued a special air quality statement for several regions in the province.
Much of central B.C., including Prince George, and areas in the north-east of the province fall under the advisory that indicates impacts can last between 24 to 48 hours.
The agency recommends people stop or reduce physical activity if their breathing becomes difficult or they feel unwell, drink plenty of fluids and follow other “common sense” measures.
It has more information on its website on how to reduce exposure to smoke.
The BC Wildfire Service says that as of Sunday afternoon, there were 20 wildfires larger than 0.01 hectares in the province.
Environment Canada says it will issue an update Monday.
