Sun Safety

It's important to keep safe while out enjoying the sun! Cover up. Wear light-coloured, long-sleeved shirts, pants, and a wide-brimmed hat made from breathable fabric. When you buy sunglasses, make sure they provide protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Limit your time in the sun, especially between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Use sunscreen. Drink plenty of cool liquids (especially water) before you feel thirsty.
