An air quality alert is in effect on Sunday, July 7. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued a code orange air quality alert for Ocean and Southeastern Burlington counties. This alert means that air pollution concentrations may become harmful to sensitive groups such as children, people with asthma, heart disease, lung disease, and the elderly.

A large wildfire in southern New Jersey is also contributing to poor air quality in that region.

To minimize the effects of air pollution, it is advisable to avoid strenuous outdoor activities.
