LATEST HEALTH ALERT

ACT Health Alert

Smoky conditions across the ACT have eased this morning and our students have been allowed outdoors.

With current levels, most people will not experience any health impact. However, intermittent patchy smoke haze is expected to linger until Sunday, so people who are more sensitive to the effects of smoke, particularly those with asthma and other heart or lung conditions, should continue to take care. This includes taking medication as prescribed by their doctor and avoiding vigorous exercise outdoors during smoky conditions. 

In the coming days, the ACT Health Directorate will continue to monitor the air quality in the ACT and will issue further health advice if needed.

At this time, patches of smoke haze are forecast to continue until Sunday. For further information on weather conditions, visit www.bom.gov.au
