The DIF social service agency received the delivery of electrolyte beverages in advance of the upcoming season of higher temperatures when they will be available for the more vulnerable members of the community on the island and on the mainland, to prevent dehydration. There was a 'symbolic' delivery of 37 cases, with more to be delivered. Residents are reminded that during hot weather they should avoid long hours of exposure to the sun, especially when it is strong, they should drink an abundant amount of water and wear light clothing.
