Cold weather calls for bundling up

first_img“Frostbite, frostnip, those affect the peripheral areas of the body, the tip of the nose, the ear lobes, maybe even the fingers and toes in certain circumstances,” said Serowik. If you do have to be outside though, emergency officials recommend having a second person with you to make sure you both are safe. “Probably the most important thing is to dress for the weather, even if you don’t plan on being outdoors for a long period of time. You don’t know if you’re going to get stuck out there, maybe your car breaks down,” said Raymond Serowik, emergency medical services coordinator for Broome County. If it’s severe enough, frostbite can cause you to lose limbs. If you’re in the cold for a long period of time, you can also experience hypothermia. This causes your internal body temperature to drop. If you don’t take the dropping temperatures seriously, experts say there could be some severe health affects associated with being outside unprotected from the elements. TOWN OF DICKINSON (WBNG) — If you’ve been outside lately, then you know the weather has been very cold. center_img “Even if you’ve never had a problem before, your health conditions may have changed and put you at more risk for this. People really need to pay attention when we start getting extraordinarily cold weather,” said Serowik. “Hypothermia can actually kill you if conditions are just wrong,” said Serowik. As temperatures continue to drop, you’ll want to make sure your warm and healthy before heading outside. Serowik says layers are the way to go. By wearing multiple layers, you can remove some clothing if the weather is warmer than you thought. last_img read more

Legislators Join Gov. Wolf in Call for Masking

first_img July 07, 2020 SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Legislators Join Gov. Wolf in Call for Maskingcenter_img Press Release,  Public Health State and federal officials joined Governor Tom Wolf in reminding Pennsylvanians to wear a mask to reduce the likelihood of spreading COVID-19.“As we increasingly resume public activities in our commonwealth, we need to remain vigilant about taking precautions, especially wearing a mask that covers our noses and mouths while around other people,” said Gov. Wolf. “This is an easy, yet important action that has been shown by research to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised people to wear a cloth mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The CDC’s website offers directions for easy-to-make masks, with patterns for sew and no-sew masks made from everyday household materials.“Public health experts continue to recommend mask-wearing in public, and ongoing research continues to support that recommendation,” said U.S. Sen. Bob Casey. “When you wear a mask, you are sending a clear message to others in your community that you care about them and their well-being as much as your own. I know that if we each do our part, we will beat this virus and be able to start safely rebuilding together.”“Since late March, I have been making the case for Pennsylvanians to wear masks when they venture out,” said U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey. “As the commonwealth continues to re-open, mask wearing has taken on increased significance, as studies continue to affirm that masks helps slow the spread of the coronavirus. Put simply, wearing a mask is an important step that we, as Pennsylvanians, can take to protect one another – as my mask protects you, and your mask protects me.”“The simple act of wearing a mask is how we protect everyone’s health and the fastest course to restoring our economy,” said state Sen. Pam Iovino. “Wearing a mask demonstrates concern for the welfare of all of us and how we get through this crisis together.”“Wearing a mask is vital to protect the health and safety of our community,” said state Rep. Melissa Shusterman. “As our state moves back to the green phase, it is the most important step we can take to preserve the progress we’ve made as a state through this crisis. As Pennsylvanians, we all need to participate in wearing masks to care for our neighbors, and so that our economy and state can continue to make a strong recovery.”Sec. of Health Dr. Rachel Levine signed an order mandating mask-wearing on July 1. It remains in effect. Frequently Asked Questions about the mask-wearing order can be found here.Ver esta página en español.last_img read more
