Special Air Quality Statement

Issued at 15:01 Tuesday 27 July 2021
Summary

Elevated pollution levels are expected or occurring.

Smoke from forest fires north of Hudson Bay is continuing to create reduced visibilities and poor air quality for communities near and downwind of the fires.

###

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.
