Pandemic or not, cooling centers are open
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – Pandemic safety measures are in place allowing ‘cooling centers’ to remain open during the current heat wave.
Among the safety guidelines, all visitors and staff at the cooling centers will be asked to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. Visitors are screened before entering and those who show symptoms may be provided an alternative location to cool off. Those who have been confirmed positive for coronavirus will not be allowed into cool centers.
Fifteen cooling centers are open to the public in Riverside County at no cost and have served about 5,800 visitors so far this summer.
The centers will be open through October as temperatures dictate.
