    Make sure to protect yourself from UV rays this summer

    As the summer reaches its peak, and temperatures rise, as do the levels of UV across the country.

    • Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
    • Wear clothes that cover your arms and legs.
    • Consider options to protect your children.
    • Wear a wide brim hat to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
    • Wear wraparound sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.
