Extended Heat Warning issued for Toronto
Based on information from Environment Canada, Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto's Medical Officer of Health, has upgraded the Heat Warning to an Extended Heat Warning, until further notice.
During an Extended Heat Warning, members of the public are encouraged to visit family, friends and neighbours, especially isolated adults and seniors who are at greater risk of suffering from heat-related illness, to make sure they are cool and drinking plenty of fluids. Other groups at risk include people with chronic illnesses, individuals with limited mobility or certain mental health illnesses, infants and young children, people on certain medications, and those who are homeless.
