The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has
issued the following...

WHAT...Ozone Action Day Alert.

WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western
Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties

WHEN...400 PM Monday August 03 to 400 PM Tuesday August 04

IMPACTS...Ozone Action Day Alert is now in effect for the Front
Range Urban Corridor. Requests to limit driving of non-ZEV
vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in effect until at least 4
p.m. Tuesday, August 4, 2020.  Ozone concentrations will be in the
Moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range on Monday and
Tuesday. Ozone concentrations in the Unhealthy for Sensitive
Groups category will be most likely during the afternoon and
evening hours in southern and western portions of the Denver metro
area, including Highlands Ranch and Golden.  For areas included in
this advisory that are not expected to reach the Unhealthy for
Sensitive Groups (USG) air quality designation, we request that
activities, such as driving non-ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or
diesel), be reduced to lessen the impacts on neighboring air
quality. Additional air pollution in this region may directly
worsen air quality or contribute to precursors which may also
adversely affect air quality.  For Colorado air quality

and breathing discomfort in active children and adults and people
with lung disease, such as asthma. Active children and adults, and
people with lung disease, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged
