National Weather Service – Heat Advisory for Wednesday July 28th and Thursday July 29th

Today, July 27th 2021, the National Weather Service (NWS) issued a Heat Advisory for portions of western and central Illinois for July 28th and 29th 2021. A Heat index of temperatures “feeling like” up to 107°F is possible in some locations of the state and is expected to occur from 1pm on Wednesday to 8pm on Thursday. Per the NWS, heat index will remain quite warm Wednesday night, offering little relief, before similar hotter heat index develops for Thursday afternoon.

If you are hosting vaccination clinics/POD’s outdoors, you should consider:
1. Moving operations indoors into a climate-controlled structure, is possible.
2. If moving indoors is not possible, ensure the site is in a shaded area with access to fans, air-conditioned tents, cold drinking water and/or other cooling mitigations, such as persons waiting in their vehicles with the air-conditioning turned on, if safe to do so.
3. Ensure young children and pets are not left in parked vehicles.
4. Management should takes steps to ensure personnel stay hydrated by drinking water.

Be sure to check your local forecast and advisory’s.
