Due to the poor air quality, the concert scheduled for this evening, Thursday, June 8 has been rescheduled to Thursday, July 13.
Air quality levels in the region continue to pose a risk to health, with very unhealthy and hazardous conditions recorded in the county. Current air quality levels in the region are considered unhealthy (151-200) to very unhealthy (201-300).
When air quality is unhealthy, all people should reduce prolonged outdoor physical exertion. If you need to be outside, take frequent breaks. Young children, older adults, and people with respiratory and cardiovascular conditions that increase their risk should avoid being outdoors for prolonged periods of time when air quality is unhealthy (151-200). When air quality is very unhealthy, everyone should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. At very unhealthy air quality levels, children, older adults, and other people with higher risk should avoid all outdoor physical activity. Residents should consider wearing an N95 or KN95 mask outdoors to reduce your exposure to pollutants. The air quality has been attributed to Canadian wildfires.
