Special Bush Fires announcement

News (January 9th): ACT Health Protection Service is now publishing the hourly data for PM2.5 and PM10.
Any new readings starting from Janurary 9th 2020 8PM will be reported using the hourly data.

Please note that the Air Pollutant Index reported by ACT (and NSW) is based on 24 hours PM2.5 and PM10 averages.This can make it really difficult to find out what the actual air quality is in real time. The best practice is to report real-time air quality using hourly data, which is what most EPA worldwide do.For instance, during a period of Haze, where the Air Quality Index can deteriorate significantly and fast, the published Air Pollution index is most likely lower than the actual pollution. Similarly, when the air polution decreases, the Air Quality Index can still be very high although the pollution is gone.Read more here.

Also, note that the Air Quality scale used on aqicn.org is based on the US EPA scale.
This can explain why you can see different values from the ACT website - Read more here.

About the Air Quality Levels

AQIAir Pollution LevelHealth ImplicationsCautionary Statement (for PM2.5)
0 - 50GoodAir quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no riskNone
51 -100ModerateAir quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
101-150Unhealthy for Sensitive GroupsMembers of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected.Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion.
151-200UnhealthyEveryone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effectsActive children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit prolonged outdoor exertion
201-300Very UnhealthyHealth warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.Active children and adults, and people with respiratory disease, such as asthma, should avoid all outdoor exertion; everyone else, especially children, should limit outdoor exertion.
300+HazardousHealth alert: everyone may experience more serious health effectsEveryone should avoid all outdoor exertion
