SPECIAL AIR QUALITY STATEMENT IN EFFECT FOR:

THE MINISTRY OF ENVIRONMENT, IN COLLABORATION WITH THE INTERIOR HEALTH AUTHORITY, HAS ISSUED A DUST ADVISORY FOR VERNON DUE TO HIGH CONCENTRATIONS OF COARSE PARTICULATES, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO PERSIST UNTIL THERE IS A CHANGE IN CURRENT WEATHER CONDITIONS.

PERSONS WITH CHRONIC UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS SHOULD POSTPONE STRENUOUS EXERCISE UNTIL THE ADVISORY IS LIFTED. STAYING INDOORS AND IN AIR-CONDITIONED SPACES HELPS TO REDUCE PARTICULATE EXPOSURE.
