Exposure to particle pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, cause asthma attacks and acute bronchitis and increase risk of respiratory infections.


Residents are advised to continue to use caution as conditions warrant. People with heart or lung diseases should follow their doctors advice for dealing with episodes of unhealthy air quality.


Older adults and children should avoid prolonged exposure, strenuous activities or heavy exertion as conditions dictate.
