Announcement on the dust in the atmosphere of Cyprus
Because of the small size of the respirable particles and their negative effect on human health, the public and especially the vulnerable groups of population (children, older people, and patients) are advised to avoid outdoor activities and exercising in open spaces during this event.
Also, it is required that the employers take the appropriate measures (organizational or technical) after assessing the risks that their employees are facing while working in open spaces. Moreover, it is recommended that the workers in open spaces use appropriate means of personal protection.
More information on the measured pollutant concentrations is available online through the dedicated website maintained by DLI at www.airquality.gov.cy and also through the free application “Air Quality Cyprus” on the Google Play and iOS App Store.(MG)
