Special air quality statement in effect for:

City of Toronto

Possible high levels of air pollution are expected today in the southwestern Ontario and Greater Toronto Area.

A special air quality statement is in place due to the possibility of deteriorating air quality. Hot and sunny conditions are expected to cause increasing ground-level ozone concentrations in the area. Moderate risk AQHI values are expected throughout today with the potential of high risk AQHI values this afternoon in southwestern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area, and possibly Monday afternoon in extreme southwestern Ontario too.

Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.

If you are experiencing symptoms, such as coughing or throat irritation, consider reducing or rescheduling strenuous outdoor activities until the special air quality statement is lifted. Exposure to air pollution is particularly a health concern for people with heart or breathing problems, those with diabetes, children and the elderly.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
