Residents of these areas should refrain from engaging in outdoor activities and closely monitor the situation.

In the northern region, the air quality today was rated from very good to unhealthy for sensitive groups, with the quantity of PM 2.5 measured at between 18 to 77 micrograms per cubic meter. The PM 2.5 level was recorded at higher than the standard level in Mae Pa subdistrict in Tak, Nai Wiang subdistrict in Nan, Phrabat subdistrict in Lampang, Sop Pat subdistrict in Lampang, Ban Dong subdistrict in Lampang, Mae Mo subdistrict in Lampang, and Na Chak subdistrict in Phrae.
