The Ministry of Environment has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Quesnel and Williams Lake because of high concentrations of fine particulates that are expected to persist for the next 24 to 48 hours.
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 fine particulate exposure. Exposure is particularly a concern for infants, the elderly and those who have diabetes, and lung or heart disease.
