With rising temperatures in Southern Nevada, many people are looking for ways to cool off, and cooling stations are an option for those to keep cool around the valley.

Clark County has partnered with different locations to offer the service, during the current pandemic, with each location is in charge of enforcing social distancing.

At the Henderson Recreational Center, your temperature is checked, and you need to wear a mask. If it becomes full, there's a 3-hour limit per participant, but if not, visitors can stay there for as long as needed during business hours.

Once inside, people can gran two bottles of cold water and snacks to enjoy while cooling off.
