Public Health has issued warm weather advice and says islanders should take 'sensible precautions' against heat exhaustion, heatstroke, and dehydration.
"With temperatures set to rise in the coming days and as we enter the summer season, it is vital that Islanders, especially those at risk, take the necessary precautions when out and about. Those at greatest risk include elderly people, babies, and young children as well as those with a serious chronic condition such as heart or breathing problems.
I urge Islanders to stay out of the sun during the hottest part of the day and to check up on friends, relatives, and neighbours who may be less able to look after themselves.” - Grace Norman, Deputy Director of Public Health.
