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
