Air quality will be unhealthy Tuesday for sensitive individuals in some Los Angeles County areas.
The health alert, based on South Coast Air Quality Management District guidance, applies to the Santa Clarita Valley and the San Gabriel Mountains.
Los Angeles County’s health officer, Dr. Muntu Davis, advises people who live or work in those areas and have heart disease, asthma or other respiratory diseases to minimize outdoor activities.
Children who have sensitive conditions, including heart disease, asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases, should not participate in outdoor physical activity and should stay indoors as much as possible, he said.
