Air quality will be unhealthy for all individuals in the Santa Clarita Valley Thursday, according to an advisory from the South Coast Air Quality Management District Wednesday afternoon.
The advisory also warns of unhealthy air quality for all residents of the East San Gabriel Valley, the San Gabriel Mountains and the Antelope Valley, and unhealthy for sensitive individuals in the Pomona area, East and West San Fernando Valley and West San Gabriel Valley areas.
Los Angeles County Interim Health Officer, Jeffrey Gunzenhauser, MD, MPH, advises people living or working in the affected areas who have heart disease, asthma or other respiratory diseases to minimize outdoor activities.
Children who have sensitive conditions, including heart disease, asthma, and other chronic respiratory diseases, should not participate in outdoor physical activity at schools, camps and other recreational programs and should stay indoors as much as possible.
