Federal health officials recommend getting retested if symptoms show up again, especially after that three month period wildfires across the state putting a damper on summer. Sometimes when you get up in the morning, the smoke is pretty epic. And so that makes it not as much fun either. Louis works at the hot Springs pool in Glenwood Springs and knows people in some nearby towns have been evacuated because it when it jumped across the river. So if there's still a lot of concern, because you just don't know what's gonna happen, the Grizzly Creek fire burning in Glenwood Canyon and closing I 70 east of town now at 26,000 acres, the state's largest the Pine Gulch in Mesa County, now at more than 81,000 acres.

Those two fires together, producing some of the worst air quality we've seen so far this summer.

Harris is the first woman of color on a major priority presidential ticket. Meanwhile, both President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, made campaign donations to harass his reelection campaign for attorney general of California. President donated $5000 in 2011. Ivanka gave Harris's campaign 2020 14. President's top economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, today was critical of Joe Biden's plan for the US economy, saying Biden just wants to raise taxes. He is a tax.
