POOR EDMONTON AIR QUALITY — Stay Indoors Unless Necessary

This is just a head’s up to you all that Edmonton’s current air quality isn’t looking so good. It is sitting at a 7, which is considered rather high. Don’t hang out outdoors unless it is absolutely necessary.

This isn’t a well-known issue for some reason, but here you have it.

It’s not necessarily dangerous, but it is considered even worse for our younger and elder populous. Just thought I’d let everyone know. Be safe and have a great evening! — Jody Mitoma

    • There is an inversion which is keeping the pollution around instead of letting it dissipate like normal. They said it should be gone later in the day I think.

  7. You might be shocked to know that indoor air quality is around 70% worst than outdoor thanks to all the chemical products we use these days to build,wash,and clean the houses we live in…there’s no escaping this!

  8. Thank you for the info.
    And very off topic, but I also want to thank you for your reference to elders, versus elderly. Seems a small thing perhaps, but feels vastly more respectful.

  9. I just can’t! It too beautiful. I can stay cooped up for another day watching the beautiful sun melt the snow. The air is so fresh! My kids have been outside like 60% of this entire day!

    Glad to see that Carbon Tax is scrubbing the air clean again.

    The warning I received on my phone stated pollution as the cause of the warning.
