Air pollutants rise from Geri fire, but remain manageable

Public urged to take precautions as pollutants escalate from Geri industrial fire


The Department of Labour Inspection has issued a statement in response to the ongoing fire in the Industrial Area of Geri, noting elevated concentrations of pollutants. Ground-based air quality monitoring conducted by the Department reveals these heightened levels in the Geri area on Monday, July 17, 2023. However, it is emphasized that these measurements still fall within the limits set by relevant legislation governing air quality.

It is worth mentioning that the Air Quality Monitoring Network's ground stations, including Nicosia Traffic and Nicosia Residential in the Nicosia area, do not report any significant increase in pollutant concentrations.

As a precautionary measure, the public is advised to minimize non-essential travel, and particularly vulnerable groups such as children, the elderly, and individuals with pre-existing health conditions are encouraged to avoid outdoor activities until the situation subsides.
