 Authorities on Monday warned the public to take precautions as high concentrations of dust have been detected in the atmosphere.

The public, particularly vulnerable groups of the population like children and elderly people, were urged to avoid going out as the small size of dust particles may have negative effects on human health.

Employers must also take appropriate measures for workers in open areas.

According to measurements from stations of the Air Quality Monitoring Network operated by the Department of Labour Inspection, the highest dust concentrations at 10am were recorded in Paphos followed by Nicosia.
