county officials for more details, which may include guidance for
proper social distancing measures.

Recognize the signs and symptoms of heat-related illness. Early

include: cool, moist, pale skin; headache; dizziness; weakness or
exhaustion; nausea. The most serious illness is heat stroke,
which may include: vomiting; confusion; throbbing headache;
