Special Air Quality StatementIssued at 10:36 Tuesday 03 August 2021
Smoke from forest fires over central Saskatchewan is causing poor air quality and reduced visibility at times near and downwind from these fires over central and east central areas of the province.
Hazy conditions will persist over the remainder of southern Saskatchewan due mainly to smoke aloft that has drifted in from fires over BC. Air quality has deteriorated somewhat this morning as some of this smoke has surfaced.
Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.
Please call HealthLine 811 for advice on health risks, symptoms and precautions associated with air quality.
