Hot weather: keeping safe

With temperatures soaring this week, it’s important to keep yourself and others safe. During hot weather NHS services can see added pressure, so please take precautions.

Check in: Look out for those who may struggle to keep themselves cool and hydrated. Particularly at risk are older people and those with underlying health conditions, including those who are currently shielding or self-isolating alone.

Social distancing: Keep your distance in line with social distancing guidelines and use spaces considerately. Try to stay local to stop popular areas from becoming overcrowded, or use your garden if you have one. If you cannot safely distance, for example in

shops or enclosed spaces, use a face covering. These are now mandatory on public transport.

Keep hydrated: Drink plenty of fluids and avoid excess alcohol. If you need to travel, take water with you.

Wash your hands: Remember to wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds when you can, and carry hand sanitiser when you go out.

Keep your home cool: Close windows or blinds in the daytime to stop sun exposure, and open a window to let in cooler air in the evening.
