Environment Canada has issued an air quality advisory for Vanderhoof due to high concentrations of particulates that are expected to stick around until weather conditions change.
People with chronic medical conditions should postpone strenuous exercise until the advisory is lifted.
Staying indoors helps to reduce fine particulate exposure.
The advisory is particularly a concern for infants, the elderly and those who have diabetes, and lung or heart disease.
