Face masks are essential to protect against coronavirus infections, but Rizal, Occ. Mindoro Mayor Sonny Pablo has shared another reason to cover your mouth and nose outdoors.

In a Facebook post, Pablo said people also have to protect themselves against vog, or volcanic smog from Taal Volcano’s continued activity.

The vog contains a high level of sulfur dioxide that could harm our respiratory system and worsen the condition of our lungs, he said.

People should also avoid going outdoors and should close their windows to avoid the vog, he added.

Keep masking up!

“Mag MASK ka, hindi nalang COVID-19 ang ating dapat iwasan. Ang pagdilim ng kalangitan na ating kasalukuyang nararanasan ay dahil sa VOG o Volcanic Smog hatid ng patuloy na aktibidad ng Bulkang Taal.

Naglalaman ang VOG o ang ating hangin ngayon ng mataas na bilang ng Sulfur Dioxide na nakakasama sa ating respiratory system at maaring maging dahilan ng paglalala ng kondisyon ng ating mga baga.

Bilang pag-iingat, mag-mask, iwasan ang pagtambay sa labas at sarhan ang mga bintana.

#MayorSonny,” Pablo posted.
