A Heat Advisory is in effect for the Greater Danbury area. 

The New Fairfield Library will be open from 10am to 7pm and the Senior Center will be open from 9am to 4pm for cooling.  Masks are required in both buildings regardless of vaccination status.  Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health conditions are at an increased risk.

Homes without air conditioning can be much hotter than outdoor temperatures.  New Fairfield officials asked residents to check on vulnerable friends, family members and neighbors.

New Milford will be opening cooling stations for those in need.  The Senior Center will be open from 8am to 5pm. Other cooling station will be at the Loretta Brickley Room at Town Hall from 8am to 5pm.  Residents are asked to bring a mask, though people without one will be provide with a mask. 

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
