High concentrations of dust in the air

High concentrations of dust are observed in the air today, 18 November 2021, according to measurements from ground Stations of the Air Quality Monitoring Network operated by the Department of Labour Inspection.

This is the fourth consecutive warning issued by the authorities, calling on the public to take precautions.

The Department of Labour Inspection urges the public, and particularly any vulnerable groups of population (children, older people, and the infirm) to avoid circulating in open spaces until the observed episode has elapsed, as the small size of respirable particles in dust may have negative effects on human health.
