As temperatures heat up with the arrival of summer, it is important to stay safe when having fun in the sun. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has tips and tricks to keep in mind when playing outside.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing. Plan to play outside during the cooler parts of the day, like in the morning or evening. Take plenty of breaks in the shade.
Bring water with you when playing outside. Drink throughout the day. Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink!
