GHC's Recommendations for high temperatures

The summer has begun in the southern hemisphere, bringing along high temperatures. Heat can have an adverse effect on a person’s health, and can sometimes impair both mental and physical performance.

Generally speaking, pregnant women, small children, the elderly and those who are ill are more sensitive to high temperatures. Typical heat-related conditions can manifest in symptoms such as dizziness, headache, exhaustion, nausea, vomiting etc.

General advice in the event of a heatwave

  • Stay hydrated
  • Protect yourself with shade, appropriate clothing, sunscreen, etc.
  • Avoid direct sun between 11am and 4pm as solar radiation is at its strongest
  • Wear loose-fitting light-colored garments
  • High temperatures may affect food and medicines. Please review instructions for storage.
  • Keep up to date with the latest weather reports

We invite you to follow these recommendations and talk to your family and friends about them.
