What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

The air quality is good minus the occasional trash fire or outdated emissions setup on buses etc. - Nov 29, 2017
Good air quality. - Nov 3, 2015
I would say moderate to good depending on where you are at. My allergies did bother me quite a bit year round so bring your Claritin or Allegra! - Nov 26, 2014
Generally good. Sometimes you smell sulfur by the beaches, and it's dusty on occasion. Overall, though, it is not bad. - Jun 21, 2013
Very good along the coast and some dust on windy days in the city. - Feb 3, 2012
Good. - Oct 28, 2011
Good in the northern suburbs. A bit polluted downtown, but never a real problem. - Jul 11, 2010
Moderate. It can be quite dusty with all the construction going on. Plus the winds from the Sahara in the summer bring the finest sandy dust you can imagine. - May 3, 2010
