The Weather Service passed the warnings along on behalf of the Wyoming Department of Health.

According to the advisories, those with respiratory problems, the elderly and young children are most impacted by poor air quality and should avoid excessive physical exertion and minimize their outdoor activities.

But, despite the above being most susceptible to poor air quality, everyone should avoid prolonged exposure to the conditions.

According to the federal wildland fire clearinghouse website InciWeb, the western half of the united states is dotted with wildfires.
