Weather officials issued Air Quality Alerts across New Jersey
Sensitive individuals including those with heart or lung disease, the elderly, and the young should limit strenuous activities and the amount of time active outdoors. Levels of fine particulates are now considered unhealthy. This is expected to continue through this evening and get better tomorrow.
Those with pre-existing health concerns should:
- Avoid strenuous outdoor activities
- Keep outdoor activities short
- Consider moving physical activities indoors or rescheduling them.
Others without pre-existing conditions should take the following steps to reduce exposure:
