air quality action day

What the hell am I supposed to do about this?

I’m on weather.com earlier today and I see this “Air Quality” warning, so I click it. The warning reads;

THE PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION HAS DECLARED AN AIR QUALITY ACTION DAY FOR THE REGION… IN EFFECT FROM 9 AM TO 10 PM EDT FRIDAY.

AN AIR QUALITY ACTION DAY MEANS THAT AIR QUALITY WITHIN THE REGION MAY APPROACH OR EXCEED UNHEALTHY STANDARDS.

Confused, I head over to NOAA.gov to read about what the heck that means;

“Unhealthy” means that everyone may begin to experience some adverse health effects, and members of the sensitive groups may experience more serious effects.

Well, fantastic. What am I supposed to do about that? Just deal with it? If I stay indoors and seal my windows with duct-tape, will the terrorists win?
