County officials Saturday announced the location of several “Cool Zones,” mostly in the hottest areas, where seniors and others can gather in air conditioned buildings during the ongoing heat wave.

Safety measures will be in place to protect the health of visitors and staff, such as temperature checks, wearing of face coverings, and social distancing in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the county Health and Human Services Agency.
