“With the hot temperatures and humidity now projected to last into Monday, we’ve made the decision to again extend the heat emergency to prioritize the safety of our residents,” said Wu. “As we lengthen the heat emergency for a second time, it is evident that a changing climate is a public health risk for our City. I’m thankful for the many City employees who have helped us get through the first part of this emergency, and urge residents to continue to take care of one another.”

Wu's extension of the city's heat emergency will keep the 12 Boston Centers for Youth & Families community centers open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Along with keeping community centers open, Boston will also have splash pads and other water recreation sites open throughout the city.
