Make sure to take care of yourself, especially if you have pre-existing asthma and respiratory or cardiac conditions. Stay cool and hydrated!Vulnerable people need to take extra precautions over the next couple of days, as the combined effects of hot weather and bushfire smoke in South Australia may pose a health risk.
The smoke haze may worsen in the evening causing symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing, burning eyes and chest tightness.
Those with chest and heart conditions, pregnant women, the elderly, and young children are encouraged to stay indoors as much as possible and also remember to stay hydrated.
