Drink water regularly without waiting to feel thirsty
Cool off and wet your body (at least face and forearms) several times a day
Keep your accommodation cool (close windows and shutters during the day, open them in the evening and at night if it is cooler);
Eat in sufficient quantities and avoid drinking alcohol.
Favor the coolest hours of the day to go out. If the temperature at home is very high, spend several hours a day in a cool place (cinema, municipal library, supermarket, museum ...) without forgetting to respect the barrier measures to protect from Covid19
Avoid physical effort
Remember to update your loved ones regularly and, when necessary, don't hesitate to ask for help.
Never leave a person alone in a vehicle, in particular a child, as the temperature in the passenger compartment can rise very quickly
If possible, postpone your trip to the cooler hours of the day
Remember to bring water and a fogger when driving by car
Prefer to stay in the shade, in particular between 11 am and 4 pm as soon as the UV index is higher than 3. (You can consult the specific weather forecast to know the UV density).
If you go out between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., remember to wear: covering clothing (t-shirt or shirt with sleeves and a bottom reaching below the knee at least), a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses with wraparound frame and lenses with UV filter
Sunscreens shouldn't be used as an excuse to stay in the sun longer, they can help protect areas of the skin that aren't covered by clothing if you can't stay in the shade.
Before the age of 2, never expose your baby to the sun. Childhood sun exposure is the leading cause of skin cancer in adulthood.
Pregnant women should be cautious in the sun because exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light can cause hyperpigmentation of the skin (the "pregnancy mask" or a brown line on the stomach).
It is essential to teach children to swim as early as possible or to accustom them to the aquatic environment. It is never too late to learn to swim, even as adults.
A child should always be supervised by an adult when swimming
For adults, take into account your state of health, do not swim if you experience a physical disorder (fatigue, health problems, chills), do not overestimate your physical condition and your level of swimming, avoid swimming.
Do not swim after alcohol consumption
Re-enter into the water gradually, especially after long exposure to the sun
Take into account the bathing environment, especially in streams, bodies of water, and at sea, to be informed about the weather conditions and, in general, to respect the safety instructions and bathing bans in supervised areas marked by bathing flags.
The stress test is a critical study, to know how well our body is working and in what aspects it should work or strengthen for physical health.
Be careful and avoid the risk of Alcoholic Congestion.
