The B.C. wildfires have blanketed the province in smoke and haze.
These conditions have now prompted an air quality advisory and heat wave warning for Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
For the new regions experiencing these conditions, the most affected are in the eastern Fraser Valley. In the areas of Chilliwack, Agassiz and Hope, the health index is currently at a nine out of 10 on the scale.
This number means the health risk is very high. Environment Canada says people with heart or breathing problems should reduce or reschedule strenuous outdoor activities. Children and the elderly should also take it easy.
Everyone should consider reducing or rescheduling strenuous activities outdoors if you experience symptoms such as coughing and throat irritation.
Other areas around the province, especially those closer to the wildfires, are already off the scale and much worse in terms of the air quality index.
Closer to the water in the Lower Mainland, the health index is at two or four.
