The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an Air Quality Health Advisory for New York City until 11:00 PM tonight.

More protective national air quality standards for ozone and fine particles are now in effect. The AQI has been adjusted to reflect this change. This may lead to an increased frequency of air quality advisories despite recent improvements in air quality.

New York State Air Quality Hotline: (800) 535-1345
