LOS ANGELES – Air quality will be unhealthy once again Friday in many Los Angeles County valley areas.
The South Coast Air Quality Management District is forecasting air quality to be unhealthy for sensitive individuals in the Antelope Valley, West San Fernando Valley, East San Fernando Valley, and West San Gabriel Valley.
Los Angeles County’s health officer, Dr. Muntu Davis, advises people who live or work in those areas and have heart disease, asthma or other respiratory diseases to minimize outdoor activities.
Children who have sensitive conditions, including heart disease, asthma and other chronic respiratory diseases, should not participate in outdoor physical activity and should stay indoors as much as possible, he said.
