3. Cover your nose and mouth with a mask or towel when it is dusty

4. Avoid or reduce outdoor activities, especially if you have allergies

5. Stay indoors to avoid dust inhalation of harmful particles coming with the wind

6. Wear clothes that keep your body warm

7. Come to the clinic if you have red, itchy, and watery eyes.
