L.A. County has announced several emergency cooling centers available on both Wednesday, May 6 and Thursday, May 7 from noon to 6 p.m. Despite Stay at Home orders, you are free to go to these centers if you do not have AC or other cooling methods in your home. 

A complete list of operational cooling centers is available here, or you can call 211 for more info. They are all free to access. You will be required to practice social distancing and abide by health orders, so bring your cloth face covering. The County also advises calling in advance to make sure there’s still room available.

A heat advisory is in effect from May 6 at 10 a.m. through May 7 at 9 p.m. Drink plenty of water, avoid the sun, and stay safe!
