Safe in the Sun!

Here are some ways to protect you and your child from harmful UV sun rays when enjoying the outdoors this summer:

  • Stay in the shade whenever possible. Plan indoor activities during the mid-day hours when the UV rays are strongest and most dangerous.
  • If possible, wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants or skirts.
  • Wear a hat that shades the face, neck, ears and scalp.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect eyes from UV rays.
  • Use a sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 15 every time your child goes outside. Don't forget to apply to ears, noses, lips, and tops of feet.
