The Maine Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau of Air

Ozone levels are expected to remain in the Unhealthy for Sensitive

irritation, and or experience an uncomfortable sensation in their
chest. Individuals are encouraged to limit the intensity and duration
of outdoor activities.

The Maine Department of Environmental Protection recommends that
individuals consider limiting strenuous outdoor physical activity to
reduce the risk of adverse health effects. People who may be
especially sensitive to the effects of elevated levels of pollutants
include the very young, the elderly and those with pre-existing
respiratory problems such as asthma and or heart disease. Those with
symptoms should consider consulting their personal physician.

A toll free air quality hotline has been established so Maine
