Britons with asthma travelling to central Ohio should be aware that people with the condition have been warned to avoid exercising outdoors
Britons with asthma travelling to central Ohio are being made aware that a warning to avoid exercising outdoors was issued earlier this week.
Those travelling to the region should also make sure that they have taken out a good
medical travel insurance policy to cover themselves for illness.
High temperatures and a blazing sun prompted the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) to issue an orange alert for both Memorial Day and Tuesday - one of the earliest ozone alerts in the region in nearly 10 years.
An orange alert means that ground level ozone concentrations are expected to reach levels that are unhealthy for sensitive people - such as those with asthma.
On Tuesday, the temperature reached 34 degrees. Last year the MORPC - which issues ozone alerts for the Columbus region - did not issue the first ozone alert until June 18.
