The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory through 8 p.m. Thursday for parts of Contra Costa, with forecasted temperatures as high as 106 degrees in cities such as Concord and Brentwood.

Stay inside in an air-conditioned space during the hottest parts of the day, if possible. Indoor, air-conditioned public spaces such as libraries, indoor malls and community centers are good options – in Contra Costa, call 211 for information about air-conditioned spaces to stay cool near you.

“Many schools are starting this week, stay safe and follow our health advice. Avoid strenuous exercise or outdoor work during peak hours. Wear appropriate clothing and drink more water than you think you need," said Dr. Rohan Radhakrishna, Contra Costa County Deputy Health Officer.

Never leave children or pets in a parked car, especially in hot weather. The temperature inside a parked car can rise 20 degrees in just 10 minutes, even with the window cracked, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention.
