It's Ozone Season

Summer means sunshine, outdoor fun...and ozone.


Ozone is an odorless, colorless gas that can make asthma worse.

Recommendations for physical activity to avoid exposure to ozone (Spanish):

  • The best time for outdoor summer physical activity is before noon or after 6:00 pm.
  • If you are physically active between noon and 6:00 pm:
    • Consider light to moderate activity (i.e., walking instead of running),
    • Consider indoor activities.
  • Check current ozone levels at airquality.utah.gov
  • Use the ozone symptom tracker to monitor your symptoms.
