Heatwave Plan 2022

03 June 2022

Summer is slowly coming to Luxembourg and is often accompanied by a heat wave. To avoid serious health problems, the Ministry of Health calls on the population to be vigilant. To enjoy the nice weather without taking health risks, you should follow these five golden rules:

  1. Drink at least 1.5 litres of water per day.
  2. Spend several hours a day in cool or shady places.
  3. Avoid intense physical activity during the hottest hours of the day.
  4. Cool down by taking showers or partial baths.

To protect older people in your area who live alone, make sure they have enough water available and drink enough of it.

To protect people aged 75 and over who live alone or with someone who has limited autonomy and does not receive assistance from others, the Ministry of Health has initiated the Heatwave Plan. This offers affected persons control visits as well as monitoring of drinking behaviour.
