Air Quality Health Advisory for Saturday, June 25, 2022

Residents advised to reduce environmental health risks

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an air quality health advisory for Saturday, June 25, 2022,  for Long Island and the New York metropolitan area. The pollutant of concern is ozone.

Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. Gregson Pigott advises that all residents, especially young children, seniors, those who exercise or are involved in strenuous outdoor work, and those with pre-existing respiratory or heart problems, limit strenuous outdoor activity. Ozone levels are often elevated after noon through early evening on hot, sunny days. If you experience eye, nose and throat irritation, shortness of breath, chest pain contact your medical provider.

Information about ozone and health is available on the New York State Department of Health Website at:http://www.health.ny.gov/environmental/outdoors/air/ozone.htm
