(Victor Valley)– We are in the middle of an Excessive Heat Warning and we want everyone to be safe! The County website has this list of indoor cooling centers, each with their own operating hours and restrictions. With conditions constantly in flux due to COVID-19, be sure to call the venue before visiting. Seniors can also take advantage of the Senior Information and Assistance Hotline at 1-800-510-2020.
Please stay inside as much as possible, especially during the hottest time of day between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Limit your exposure to the sun, and if you do go outside, take frequent breaks, drink plenty of water, find shade, and wear light clothing and a hat.
Children, older adults, and pets tend to be more vulnerable to extreme heat, so monitor family members and check-in with friends, family, and neighbors to make sure they’re okay. This is especially important for those that don’t have air conditioning.
