Take Steps to Keep Cool and Healthy

It’s hot, humid and hazy and County Health Commissioner Dr. Patricia Schnabel Ruppert is urging residents to take some steps to stay cool and prevent heat-related illness. Never leave children, pets or those with special needs in a parked car — temperatures can rise in minutes. If you don’t have an A/C go to a cooling center. You can find one by calling your local village hall or visit: (rocklandgov.com/health). Drink fluids – avoiding alcohol, caffeine and sugary drinks. Avoid strenuous activity between 11am-4 pm – if you must be outside add a few more breaks. Also, be aware that some medications affect the body’s ability to sweat and stay cool – so check with your doctor. And finally, be a good neighbor and check on the elderly in your community and be sure they are cool, hydrated and safe.
