Spare the Air advisory continues Thursday

Thursday will mark the second consecutive Spare the Air day and the 10th time the health advisory has been issued this season, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has announced.

The advisories are issued when there is a forecast of unhealthy air quality in the region.

“Air quality is expected to be unhealthy again tomorrow,'' Jack Broadbent, air district executive officer, said in a prepared statement Wednesday. “To protect public health, we're asking Bay Area residents to do their
part to spare the air every day.''

Officials are warning residents that vigorous outdoor exercise should only be done in the early morning hours when ozone concentrations are lower. They are also reminding residents that ozone pollution is especially harmful to young children, seniors and people with respiratory and heart
conditions.

Bay Area transit agencies will not offer free transportation Thursday.
