Victoria Hall in Cobourg Available for Temporary Respite from the Heat and Outdoors

In Local

In response to the heat and poor air quality, the Town of Cobourg would like to remind all residents that the Victoria Hall lobby is open to all members of the public who require temporary respite.

The Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) has reached a level of 7-10 in the HKPR District Health Unit area, indicating high-risk air pollution levels that could pose potential health risks. The HKPR
District Health Unit has advised that individuals should reduce or reschedule strenuous outdoor activities if experiencing symptoms such as coughing and throat irritation. The at-risk population, including seniors, pregnant individuals, infants, young children, people who work outdoors, and those engaging in strenuous outdoor exercise, are more susceptible to health problems when exposed.

Those who require temporary respite from the outdoors, may visit the Victoria Hall lobby.

Victoria Hall’s air exchange system is equipped with pre-filters and HEPA air filters. A warning that 100% of particles cannot be removed, however, air quality within Victoria Hall is minored
by sensors.

Victoria Hall is open this week, Monday to Friday, from 8:30am – 7pm.
