Health Risks Associated with Exposure to Particulate Matter

Exposures to PM, in particular especially fine particles referred to as PM2.5, can cause harmful effects on the cardiovascular system including heart attacks and strokes. These effects can result in emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and death. The effects of PM exposure are compounded during the time of COVID-19, and disproportionately impact low-income communities of color.
