Heat Advisory for Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana

IL, TN, IN, KT (AP) -- A heat advisory remains in effect until 7:00pm CDT Saturday.
Temperatures will continue their heat up through the 90s each afternoon over the next several afternoons as high pressure aloft builds into and across the nation's midsection.
These temperatures will combine with rather muggy conditions to produce afternoon heat index values from 100 to 105 several days in a row. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
Precautionary/preparedness actions: A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Make sure outside pets have plenty of water.

Updated: Saturday, June 28 2014, 05:58 PM CDT

Starting July 1, the Illinois Department of Public Health will require all restaurant employees to take a training course.

The new food handler's training calls for all restaurant employees to undergo basic training on how to prevent foodborne illnesses, something never required before in Illinois.

The three hour course will include various subjects, like how to propperly clean and store untensils, along with propper food storage temperatures.

Employees will be also must pay a fee to take the course that will not exceed $15.  Though, the IDPH says it's a small price to pay to ensure costumers are dining safely.
