Residents are urged to take precautions following the hazard reduction burns in the Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains and the build-up of air pollution in western Sydney.
Smoke levels could persist over the next few weeks and may worsen.
Small children, the elderly and people with heart or lung disease including asthma, are most susceptible to experiencing effects from air pollution.
Health effects include a cough, sore eyes, and shortness of breath, which can last for several days after smoke is inhaled.
