The Ministry of Environment has issued a dust advisory for Vernon.

The advisory is due to high concentrations of coarse particulates, which are expected to persist until there is a change in current weather conditions.

Individuals with chronic underlying medical conditions should postpone strenuous exercise until the advisory is lifted. Staying indoors and in air-conditioned spaces helps to reduce particulate exposure, according to the ministry.

Exposure is particularly a concern for infants, the elderly and those who have diabetes, and lung or heart disease.
