Handy Tips for Staying Cool


1). Balance your time in the sun and shade. Protect your skin from rays by finding a large tree with shade, setting up an umbrella, or wearing a hat.

2). Apply sunscreen to prevent sunburn. The sunscreen with the highest SPF offers more protection, so be sure to find 30 or higher when shopping.

3). Stay hydrated. Too much sun can make people not feel well. To prevent feeling sick, drink lots of water before going outside and during your time in the heat.

4). Take breaks between the sun and the air conditioning.

We hope you all enjoy the final stretch of summer!
