Those who work outdoors should take rest from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Its better to wear thin white or lightweight loose clothing. People can use an umbrella or a hat while stepping out and do not allow children to play under the sun.” Children should not be left alone in the car.

Facilities to treat sunburn were available at all government hospitals in the district, the DMO said.
