What can I do to lower my risk from air pollution?

If pollution levels are forecast to be high:

  • Play outside at the time of day when levels will be lower

If you know pollution levels are high:

  • Playing outside is ok, just take it easier
  • Pay attention to symptoms like coughing, pain when taking a deep breath, chest tightness or wheezing
  • If you have any of these symptoms, stop playing and tell your parents, teachers or other adults
