Local 793 members are urged to take precautions to protect their health as wildfire smoke again blankets the province. The air quality will deteriorate throughout Wednesday – with the health risk stated as very high across almost the whole province from London to Toronto and Ottawa.

Air pollution poses a greater risk to members with existing heart or breathing problems. The federal government has recommended the public consumes more water and considers wearing
an N95 mask when outside.
