Special Air Quality StatementIssued at 10:51 Monday 02 August 2021
Wildfire smoke is causing poor air quality and reduced visibility at times, due to elevated values of fine particulate matter.
Air quality and visibility due to wildfire smoke can fluctuate over short distances and can vary considerably from hour to hour.
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.
People with lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, can be particularly sensitive to air pollution. They will generally experience more serious health effects at lower levels. Pollution can aggravate their diseases, leading to increased medication use, doctor and emergency room visits, and hospital visits.
Please call HealthLine 811 for advice on health risks, symptoms and precautions associated with air quality.
