Taiyuan Datong area air quality during October, November

Considering a tour to that region of China. Would like to learn of anyone's experience there during October and November with respect to air quality. That's the coal production region in China, so we're somewhat concerned, as air quality in general in China is not so great to begin with.

Generally, October would be better than November.

Do a lot of local people there wear masks? On the Internet, I see very erratic data, so we're just confused, not trusting what we read too much. I supposed the air is not that healthy there, based on reading what's posted online. That's why I'm researching, hoping to get a better understanding. Thanks.

Pollution is in part unpredictable.

Locals rarely wear masks.

You're only visiting, not living there so, unless you have some respiratory issues, you should not worry about it.
