The Salvation Army Midland Division Opens Cooling Centers in Missouri and Illinois with COVID-19 Protocol

St. Louis, Mo. – July 24, 2020, The Salvation Army Midland Division is dedicated to the protection of our staff members and the clients we serve and has opened daytime cooling centers in Missouri and Illinois as a result of the Excessive Heat Advisory issued by the National Weather Service with operation guidelines to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our facilities.

Cooling center locations are activated when a Heat Advisory is issued when the Heat Index is expected to reach 105 degrees or air temperature reaches at least 100 degrees. A Heat Warning is issued - when the heat index is expected to reach, at least 110 degrees for two consecutive days with a minimum heat index no lower than 75 degrees at night or if a Heat Advisory is expected to last four or more days.

The Salvation Army Corps will operate cooling centers in collaboration with local coalitions. A Corps is The Salvation Army’s worship centers. The locations and hours of the cooling centers are listed below:
