Smoke from the several wildfires burning across Northern California is taking its toll on the air quality in the Sacramento region.

Residents and visitors are advised to take precautions against possible health concerns.

That means those at risk, including children, seniors and people with a heart or lung disease should reduce or reschedule strenuous activities outdoors.

Albertans across the province noticed the taste and smell of smoke hanging in the air, with many towns and cities air qualities deteriorating throughout the day. "If you have to go out then keep your windows closed and recirculate the air in the vehicle so you're not really using the outside air that much", said Wasim Naqshbandi, Manager Respiratory Homecare Solutions.

Health officials say the air quality in the province is expected to vary over the next few days.

Some businesses are also being impacted by the combination of high temperatures and smoky conditions.
