Sensitive individuals should take precautions.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District has announced that today’s air quality is unhealthy for sensitive individuals in the Santa Clarita Valley.
Los Angeles County Health Officer and Public Health Director, Jonathan E. Fielding, MD, MPH, advises people living or working in the Santa Clarita Valley with heart disease, asthma or other respiratory disease to minimize outdoor activities.
Schools that have children with sensitive conditions, including heart disease, asthma, other chronic respiratory diseases, should not participate in PE or outdoor physical activity and should stay indoors as much as possible.
