The Phase I Environmental Alert has been upheld today due to atmospheric conditions

Due to unfavorable weather conditions for the dispersion of pollutants leading to ozone, the Phase I Environmental Contingency was upheld for Wednesday June first.

In both its  10 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. reports, the Environmental Commission of the Megalopolis (CAMe) informed that a high atmospheric pressure persists in the center of the country, fostering atmospheric stagnation, mist and weak winds, which should continue during the day.

Due to these conditions, and to contribute to air quality, the suspension of circulation is maintained for all vehicles and motorcycles with red and blue stickers, with license plates ending in 3 and 4 or 9 and 0, as well as holograms 1, 2, 0 and double 00.

It is suggested that elderly citizens and people with respiratory or cardiovascular diseases remain indoors. The general public should refrain from smoking or exercising outdoors.

Activities affecting the the atmosphere will be suspended, such as cleaning and degreasing the industrial sector and closing malfunctioning gas stations.

The CAMe asks the population to stay informed on air quality through the page aire.cdmx.gob.mx and at the Environmental Commission of the Megalopolis’ (CAMe) website or Twitter account.
