Daycares are a particularly important place to know radon levels. Children's fast breathing and little lungs make them even more susceptible to radon exposure. We are working to help daycares test their radon levels and take steps to reduce radon.
Interior Health has made radon testing mandatory for daycares in its health region. We're currently working with Health Canada on a pilot daycare testing program in select areas of the Lower Mainland.
If you are a daycare operator or a parent and would like more information about radon testing in daycares, contact Maureen Sioson at email@example.com.
