Apple to Toyota Add Face Masks, Purifiers on Beijing Smog

Apple Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co., Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co. gave employees face masks, offered health tips and added office plants as pollution in Beijing hit hazardous levels for a 19th day this month.

Beijing’s city government recommended that its 20 million residents stay indoors for a second day as the local environmental monitoring center gave today’s air quality the worst rating on its six-level scale. A U.S. Embassy pollution monitor showed air quality in the Chinese capital reached hazardous levels for a fifth consecutive day.
