Unfortunately, the haze is an annual affair in Southeast Asia and we reluctantly formulate a policy on the Air Quality Index with regards to our swimming training. Please check the AQI daily to determine the levels. If your child has sensitive lungs or is asthmatic, please do not allow them to train. All training will be canceled automatically if the AQI exceeds 150.
|Air Quality Index (AQI) Levels|
|AQI||AQ Level||Health Implications||PSC Swim Team Response|
|0 – 50||Good||Air quality is considered satisfactory, an air pollution poses little or no risk.||No action. All training as per normal.|
|51 – 100||Moderate||Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.||Sensitive individuals may choose not to participate in land exercises.|
|101 – 150||Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups||Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected.||No land exercises. Sensitive individuals and very young swimmers should not train.|
|151 – 200||Unhealthy||Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.||All training canceled.|
|201 – 300||Very Unhealthy||Health warning of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected.||All training canceled.|
|300 +||Hazardous||Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects||All training canceled.|
