The EPA, which has 11 monitoring stations around the state including one at Westports Sherwood Island State Park, said in a statement:

ғAir quality on Thursday, Aug. 21, is predicted to be unhealthy statewide in Connecticut due to elevated concentrations of ground-level ozone, commonly called smog.

Moderate levels of particulate matter are also expected in Connecticut on Thursday.Ԕ

It said all people, especially children and those with respiratory ailments, should limit strenuous outdoor activity when high ozone levels are expected.
