For individuals and families who prefer to stay home through the hot temperatures, the Los Angeles County Public Health recommends several ways to manage the heat.  Among them are drinking water often, wearing light, loose-fit clothing, and avoiding unnecessary sun exposure.

 

It is also recommended to stay in an air-conditioned area, such as shopping malls and libraries — if there is no air conditioning at home — during peak heat hours to stay cool and to avoid unnecessary exertion when outside or in a non-air-conditioned building.
