Air Quality Alert issued for Thursday, July 27

An Air Quality Alert has been issued in Louisville for Thursday, July 27. Ozone pollution is forecast to be at levels that are unhealthy for sensitive groups due to elevated temperatures and residual smoke from wildfires.

Sensitive groups include children, older adults, those with asthma, COPD, and other breathing ailments, and any other residents that are active outdoors. Sensitive groups should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion, take more breaks, and do less intense activities, especially later in the day. Others are not likely to be affected, but should also be aware of symptoms like coughing, shortness of breath, or other respiratory issues.

Ozone pollution generally builds up throughout the day and impacts air quality most in the late afternoon and early evening. Follow live air quality conditions at Louisville Air Watch.
