Multnomah County, which houses Oregon’s biggest city, Portland, warned its residents on Monday not to go outside due to hazardous air quality amid the wildfires raging across the West Coast.
“NO ONE should be outside,” the county’s official Twitter account wrote Monday, asking employers and employees not to work outside.
