Widespread wildfire smoke continues to produce very poor air quality and reduced visibilities over much of the province, including the City of Winnipeg.   

Most of the smoke is coming from fires burning in the northern prairies and the Northwest Territories.

The worst of the smoke is expected to gradually clear out of Northern Manitoba on Tuesday, and should clear out of southern Manitoba by Wednesday morning.

Environment Canada warns that wildfire smoke concentrations can fluctuate over short distances and vary considerably from hour to hour and can be harmful to everyone's health even at low concentrations. 

Stop outdoor activities and contact your health care provider if you or someone in your care experiences shortness of breath, wheezing (including asthma attacks), severe cough, dizziness or chest pains. Stay inside if you are feeling unwell and experiencing symptoms.
