Beat the heat this week

Published: 22 June 2020

We are expecting a heatwave this week and it's especially important at the moment that we take care of ourselves and the people around us. Hot weather could increase the health risks to vulnerable people. 

It is recommended to:

  • Check in on others, either remotely or following social distancing and public health advice
  • Stay hydrated
  • Keep the home cool
  • Look out for signs of heat-related harm (NHS)
  • Enjoy the weather safely, following the latest government COVID guidance
  • Try to keep our of the sun when it's at it's hottest, between 11am and 3pm
