City of Pasadena to Open Emergency Cooling Center with COVID-19 Restrictions

PASADENA, Calif.—Temperatures in Pasadena are expected to reach over 100 degrees this Labor Day weekend. Vulnerable populations, such as the elderly who do not live in air-conditioned homes, may need relief from the heat. To meet this need, the City is opening Robinson Park Recreation Center, located at 1081 N. Fair Oaks Ave., as an emergency cooling center Friday, Sept. 4, through Monday, Sept. 7, 9 a.m.–6 p.m.

The center can accommodate up to 50 people, and visitors are required to bring a face covering to wear at all times. Staff and visitors will also be required to maintain a distance of at least six feet between one another; exceptions will be made for individuals living in the same household. The center will not be open for recreational activity.
