Air quality

Saturday and Sunday are Code Orange Air Quality Action days for Delaware.

So said DNREC, which predicted high temperatures will act as a catalyst for car exhaust, industrial pollutants and other compounds to raise ground-level ozone concentrations to a point where spending too much time outside, or engaging in strenuous outdoor activity, can be uncomfortable or even dangerous for members of sensitive groups.

Those groups include the elderly, very young children and people with heart and/or respiratory problems.

Anyone with a question about air quality can call DNREC's Division of Air Quality at 302.739.9402.

Health-related questions can be directed to Delaware's Division of Public Health at 302.744.4700.
