CHENEY — Due to the extreme heat forecast for the next several days, city officials are opening up the lobby and auditorium at City Hall as a cooling center.

Anyone in need of relief from the heat is welcome to come cool off at City Hall, 609 Second St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. June 28 through July 2, officials said. Entry is through the main door.

Residents using the cooling center are asked to follow COVID-19 guidelines by keeping appropriate social distancing and wearing masks, if not vaccinated, officials said. Capacity will be limited to 40 people at a time.

"Out of respect for fellow citizens, please limit the time you are at the cooling center to a reasonable cooling off period," officials said in a news release. "As every person is different, we are not putting a hard and fast time limit on the length of a persons stay in the cooling center."
