People who are sensitive to air pollution should be careful of heavy or extended outdoor exercise until 4 p.m. Sunday, according to a state government alert.

The alert was issued because the state’s expecting more ozone than usual in the air. The Department of Public Health and Environment urges caution specifically from noon to 10 p.m. for sensitive groups.

Those affected could include:

  • Kids
  • Older adults
  • People with lung diseases, including asthma
  • People with cardiopulmonary disease
