SHASTA LAKE, Calif. - With the scorching temperatures, people are looking for places to cool down without exposing themselves to the coronavirus.

The Shasta County Health and Human Services Agency opened up the first cooling center of the summer in the City of Shasta Lake. People can come inside and escape the heat and cool down.

But there are coronavirus precautions in place like having masks available, temperature checks at the front, and making sure people follow social distance guidelines. The cooling center can safely handle about 40 people.

“A lot of businesses have their lobbies closed and because some businesses haven't reopened, we want to give people a place to go where they can stay cool,” said Jill Haskett, an education specialist with Shasta Health & Human Services Agency
The cooling center is free for anyone to use and people can stay for as long as they want.

“It will limit heatstroke and if people just try to stay inside, stay cool, and stay in the shade it will work,” said Andrew Mars of Shasta County.
The cooling center will also be open on June 26, from noon to 6 p.m.
