Every summer, the County of San Diego Aging and Independence Services (AIS) open Cool Zones as a place for senior citizens, people with special needs and the general public to escape mid-day summer heat and reduce their air conditioning use.
Cool Zones are set up in locations that are open to the public, so that all customers can beat the heat and save on energy costs.
Cool Zone Open Dates
On Friday, August 20, 2021, a total of 56 Cool Zones are open to the public.
Due to COVID-19, safety measures will be in place to protect the health of Cool Zone visitors and staff. Anyone entering a Cool Zone will have their temperature taken. All visitors and staff must also wear face coverings and practice social distancing.
