Hot weather has arrived in Manitoba. Individuals who are elderly, living alone or with compromised health will benefit from a regular check-in during times of high heat.  

All Manitobans can take care to prevent heat illness by:

  • drinking plenty of liquids, especially water, before feeling thirsty;
  • avoiding prolonged sun exposure;
  • cancelling outdoor activities or rescheduling them to cooler times of the day;
  • taking more breaks and staying well hydrated if working outdoors;
  • wearing loose-fitting, light-coloured clothing and a wide-brimmed hat;
  • limiting alcohol consumption;
  • blocking sun out at home during the day by closing awnings, curtains or blinds;
  • taking a cool shower or bath; or 
  • going to a cool place such as a mall, community centre, public library or place of worship.
