The air on Monday was at a high of 5 out of a possible 10 in the Air Quality Health Index.
As warm weather and sunshine beckoned to winter-weary Torontonians yesterday, health authorities rained on their parade with stern warnings to avoid strenuous activity or otherwise stay indoors.
Toronto Public Health issued its first high health risk reading of air quality for 2008, rating the city's air a seven on the newly implemented 10-point Air Quality Health Index.
- If you have heart or breathing problems, and experience symptoms, consider reducing physical exertion outdoors or reschedule activities to times when the index is lower.
- Follow your doctor's usual advice about managing your condition.
- No need to modify your usual outdoor activities.
