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 Wednesday July 08 to 400 PM Thursday July 09

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. Thursday, July 9, 2020.  Ozone concentrations should
generally remain in the Moderate category throughout the Front
Range region on Wednesday. However, higher ozone concentrations
are expected on Thursday with some areas possibly reaching the
Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category. Ozone concentrations in
the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category on Thursday are most
likely for the south and west suburbs of Denver, 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 conditions, forecasts and

HEALTH INFORMATION...Increasing likelihood of respiratory symptoms
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
or heavy outdoor exertion.
