PHOENIX (AP) - Environmental regulators have issued an ozone high pollution advisory for metro Phoenix.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality extended the advisory for Maricopa County into Friday.

The agency says the area’s ozone levels are expected to exceed the new, lower federal health standard for air quality.

Regulators say people with respiratory problems should limit their outdoor activities for the day.

Other recommendations include driving as little as possible, avoiding drive-thru lines and making sure that containers with household cleaners and other chemicals are sealed to prevent vapors from evaporating into the air.
