High temperatures are in the forecast for many areas throughout LA County this week. Public Health offers the following recommendations during high temperatures:
Drink plenty of water and keep hydrated throughout the day.
If you must go out, plan your day to avoid going out during the hottest hours, and wear sunscreen. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothes, and bring a hat or umbrella with you.
Cars get very hot. Don’t leave children or pets in cars, and dial 9-1-1 if you see a child or pet in a car alone.
Beware of heat-related illness, like heat stroke and dial 9-1-1 if you see these symptoms: high body temperature, vomiting, and pale and clammy skin.
Check on those at risk, like the sick, older adults, pregnant women, and children.
Avoid working out wearing face coverings or masks not intended for athletic purposes; this means avoiding contact with others while you work out.
Because of COVID-19, neither the Senior Center or the County Library is available as a cool space. Please reach out to friends and neighbors.
