For the second week in a row, Mayor Walsh has declared a city heat emergency for Sunday and Monday due to expected hot temps, which means many community centers will be open as cooling centers between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday and 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Monday (complete list). Because we're still in a Covid-19 emergency, you'll need to wear a face covering to get in - and you'll probably want to call ahead to make sure the center you want to go to hasn't reached its new, reduced capacity.
