Alert:
...HIGH POLLUTION ADVISORY FOR SANTA CRUZ COUNTY INCLUDING NOGALES
THROUGH MONDAY...
This means that ongoing stagnant weather conditions combined with
existing airborne fine particle levels may result in local fine
particle concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health
effects increase as air quality deteriorates.
Fine particulate matter - also known as PM-2.5 - is an air
contaminant that can aggravate heart and lung disease conditions,
especially in older adults, children, and those with asthma. A
decrease in physical activity is recommended.
Consolidate your travel, reduce or eliminate fireplace use, and avoid
using gas-powered lawn equipment.
