Ozone Health Advisory

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an ozone health advisory for the Long Island region. Suffolk County Health Commissioner Dr. James Tomarken advises that young children, the elderly, 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.

Air Quality Forecasts are available on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation website at http://www.dec.ny.gov/cfmx/extapps/aqi/aqi_forecast.cfm
