The Var placed on vigilance ozone pollution, what to do and what not to do

After the drought alert and the heat wave… the pollution. AtmoSud Paca placed the Var department in vigilance ozone pollution for Friday, July 15.

According to the organization, the municipalities of La Seyne, Toulon, Hyères, Brignoles, Draguignan and Fréjus have an air quality index “mallows” during this day.

In question ? A moderate mistral which will push strong ozone pollution from the Bouches-du-Rhône towards the Var.

Actions to take

The regional health agency (ARS) recommend to avoid “the practice of intense physical or sporting activities outdoors”.

Health authorities are also advising people “vulnerable and sensitive” avoid going out when “sunshine is maximum”.

Finally, travel by car is not recommended. Public transport should be preferred.
