 0 to 9 
 Good 

Beautiful. In many parts of Tasmania background PM2.5 is less than 5 and hard to beat.


Enjoy the outdoors.

 10 to 24 
 Fairly Good 

Generally good, it might appear a little hazy.


This could indicate that air quality is beginning to get worse. Keep an eye on conditions. If the smoke has been much worse and is now improving, this is a good time to open and air your house.

 25 to 49 
 Fairly Poor 

Generally, you are able to see or smell smoke in the air when PM2.5 is over 25.


The smoky air could worsen the health of people at higher risk from smoke. People at higher risk from smoke should consider taking action.

 50 to 99 
 Poor 

Visibility will be poor, and conditions may be unpleasant for some people.


The smoky air is likely to worsen the health of people at higher risk from smoke. People at higher risk from smoke should take action to manage any health conditions and reduce the amount of smoke they breathe.

 100 to 299 
 Very Poor 

It will likely be very smoky and unpleasant for everyone.


The smoky air is very likely to worsen the health of people at higher risk from smoke. People at higher risk from smoke need to take action to manage any health conditions and reduce the amount of smoke they breathe. People not in higher risk groups should consider taking action to minimise their smoke exposure if practical.

 300 (+) 
  Extremely Poor  

It will be very smoky and unpleasant for everyone.


This represents severe air pollution. Everyone should take action to manage any health conditions and reduce the amount of smoke they breathe.
