Beginners Guide to Downtown: Enjoying the outdoors and staying safe from the heat

Posted on : Thursday, June 17, 2021


With the start of summer and the Covid-19 restrictions easing up a little bit, people are excited to get outside and explore downtown. With all the excitement it is very important that we remember to stay safe from prolonged exposure to the hot weather. Being in the sun all day without taking proper precautions can lead to illnesses such as sunburn, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke which can have the symptoms of fatigue, weakness, headaches and many more. When you are in downtown enjoying the outdoor patios or stopping by the Pop-up Park this weekend, remember to always have water by your side, have sunscreen on, and also wear a hat or bring something that provides some shade. Stay safe!
