Snow Notes

LifeBridge Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention remind you to follow the following winter weather tips to stay healthy during this inclement weather.
  • When headed outside, remember to wear a hat, a scarf, sleeves that are snug at the wrist, mittens, water resistant coat and boots, and several layers of loose-fitting clothing.
  • Before traveling, clean off your entire car, from the top to the headlights. Otherwise snow can fly onto a fellow driver's windshield and cause an accident.
  • If you are traveling by car today, remember to pack extra warm clothing, a flashlight, blanket, cell phone and water.
  • If you are working outside, dress warmly and work slowly. Persistent shivering is a sign to return indoors.
  • Avoid getting gasoline or alcohol on your skin while de-icing and fueling your car or using a snow blower.
  • To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, use generators and similar items outdoors only.

Please note that today's blood drive at Sinai Hospital is canceled. All outpatient services at Northwest Hospital will resume operations on their normal schedule today.
