Dust advisory issued for Vernon – again

Ministry of Environment, Interior Health issue second advisory in as many weeks due to conditions

Another week, another dust advisory for Vernon.

The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, in collaboration with the Interior Health Authority, issued a Dust Advisory for Vernon Monday due to high concentrations of coarse particulates, which are expected to persist until there is a change in current weather conditions.

Persons 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.
