Hatzolah of Central Jersey on Wednesday issued a health advisory for readers of The Lakewood Scoop. Really.
Hatzolah said that TLS readers – especially children, seniors, and those with health conditions – should stay indoors as smoke from Canadian wildfires blanket the region.
Hatzolah has therefore recommended that TLS readers should limit their outdoor activities.
Now, one would think this is a health advisory applicable to everyone, but apparently not. Despite massive readerships on both Lakewood Alerts and Lakewood News Network, Hatzolah provided this warning exclusively to TLS. Hence, Hatzolah administration must feel that for some reason the smoke will only negatively affect individuals who look at that particular website.
Hatzolah has not provided a reason yet as to why it believes TLS readers are at higher risk of negative impacts from this serious smoke condition.
However, as a precaution, we are including the advisory issued by Chevra Hatzalah below.
