The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a public notice yesterday warning that its sensors are reporting that the air quality in regions Three and Four is in the “unhealthy” range which is based on the World Health Organization Standards for Good Air Quality.

The EPA’s release also noted that its sensors at Eccles, East Bank Demerara, and Sophia, Georgetown, currently show much higher concentrations than that which was recorded on March 25. 

In light of the aforementioned data, the EPA is encouraging the public to take precautionary measures to protect their health by limiting the time spent outdoors and to wear dust masks where practicable.
