Guidelines for Physical Activity in Texas Heat

With the current drought and heat wave across Texas, the determination of how hot is too hot for physical activity is important. Many students have spent the summer inside air conditioned environments and may not be prepared to be physically active outside.

Ozone Levels & Safety

The Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission says, "no warning is issued at Level Yellow which is considered a moderate level (51-100). Concentrations of ozone at this level may cause some respiratory effects from prolonged exposure during outdoor activity in people who are unusually sensitive to ozone."  You may be able to find more information on this topic at www.epa.gov, or www.tceq.state.tx.us.
