Coronavirus: Information and advice

1. Air quality

The quality of the air we breathe is regularly in the news with large cities including Greater Manchester regularly in the spotlight.

Here in Oldham, we’re lucky to have a vast array of countryside and less heavy industry which means we have less air pollution than many other places in the region.

However, we can’t be complacent and we’re part of the Greater Manchester wide Air Quality Action Plan which is working to tackle air pollution, particularly around major roads. You can read more about our work to tackle air pollution on our Air quality management page.
