Photos: E-Z on My Eyes

Photo Collage by Jerry Solomon

The wonder of collages, for me, is the ability to narrate a thought pictorially and share it. Hopefully, it is appreciated by the selected recipients.

Let me hear from you and then we have a conversation, rather than a monologue.

Riverside County Cooling Centers

The Sun City Shadow Hills Emergency Preparedness Subcommittee is posting this for the benefit of our residents based on a Riverside County press release.

Cooling Centers Now Open Throughout Riverside County Offer Escape from Extreme Heat

With temperatures expected to remain in the triple digits through portions of the County, cooling centers opened on June 1 with modifications to accommodate coronavirus safety guidelines.

The 14 centers are open to the public at no cost. The centers will be available through October as temperatures warrant.

“Cooling centers make it possible for residents to escape extreme heat and high temperatures during the summer months, particularly those among the most vulnerable populations, like seniors,” said Kim Saruwatari, Director of Public Health. “Safety precautions in the time of coronavirus are being implemented to further protect visitors.”

Among the safety guidelines, all visitors and staff at the cooling centers are asked to wear face coverings and practice social distancing. High temperatures can be hazardous for many people, especially the elderly and those with medical conditions. Heat-related injuries such as heatstroke, an illness that occurs when the body can no longer regulate its temperature, can strike quickly and pose life-threatening consequences.

The cooling centers are coordinated by the Community Action Partnership of Riverside County, in conjunction with Riverside University Health System – Public Health, and are located in schools plus senior and community centers. Light refreshments and water are available at some locations. For a list of cooling center locations, visit www.capriverside.org/Portals/2/PDF/Cool/2020%20Cool%20Center_Directory-V3.pdf?ver=2020-06-05-123828-427&timestamp=1591385942481.
