NLH to open up as a cooling station

GLOVERSVILLE —  For the health, safety, and comfort of residents, Nathan Littauer Hospital has announced that it will open a Cooling Center this weekend in the cafeteria on the main campus at 99 E. State St.

The Center will offer water and seating in an air-conditioned space. We are opening the Center to the public while we temporarily deal with the health effects of this weekend’s heat wave. Residents using the Cooling Center are encouraged to bring reading material, games, etc. to better enjoy the Center.  

The hours of the Cooling Center in the cafeteria will be:

∫ Today 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

∫ Sunday    10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

These services are aimed at patients, at-risk populations, and those without air conditioning.

Keep in mind: Electric fans may provide comfort, but when the temperature is in the high 90s, they will not prevent heat-related illness.
