Suffolk County Commissioner of Health Services James Tomarken has issued an ozone health advisory for Long Island Wednesday and Thursday, as ozone levels are elevated and will likely remain high.

Young children, the elderly, those who exercise outside and people with respiratory or heart problems should limit arduous activity when outdoors, Mr. Tomarken said.

He said ozone levels will increase after noon through early evening during hot and sunny days.
