(Camden, NJ) — The opening concert for the Sunset Music Series at McLaughlin Norcross Memorial Dell has been postponed Wednesday due to the ongoing air quality concerns. The concert will now be held Wednesday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m.


“Camden County is currently under a Code Red Fine Particles Action Day Alert due to smoke traveling from wildfires in eastern Canada and this means that the air is unhealthy to breathe,” said Commissioner Director Louis Cappelli Jr. “In order to protect the health of our residents, we’ve decided to postpone the outdoor concert to next week when conditions are expected to be better.”


Residents are strongly encouraged to take precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones during this Code Red Action Day. Residents should: 

  • Strongly consider cancelling outdoor events and gatherings 
  • Avoid going outdoors as much as possible 
  • Avoid excessive activities outdoors, such as jogging or exercising 
  • If you have to go outdoors, wear a high-quality mask, like an N-95 or KN-95 mask 
  • Avoid areas of high congestion and where air pollution may be high, like main streets or highways, areas with low air circulation 
  • Close all windows and doors to minimize air pollution in your home 
  • Recirculate the air in your home with fans to avoid bringing more air pollution into your home 
  • Pay attention to their bodies; if they are having trouble breathing, feeling nauseous, or dizzy, they should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
