Clothing hygiene requirements are especially important in hot weather for ensuring freedom of breathing and air circulation. On such days, it is necessary to wear loose clothing made of natural fabrics, to put on light headwear and to carry a bottle of water with you. On days with a high air temperature (above 38 °C), do not go outside without special need, especially during the period of maximum solar activity (from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

In a room with air conditioning, the temperature should not be set below + 23 ° ... + 25 °C.
