Aware of vulnerability at both extremes of the heat spectrum.
Fires are coming close to where my son did a lot of local busking.
Sitting in an overly air conditioned office for one hour nearly put my neck out, at any rate severly stressed it. The vent was in fron of me so it was not due to air stream directly on my neck, but the level of refrigeration of temp which the staff could not control.
Both the female workers suffered coughs and colds due to it. They were nice and opened a door, but that was not the answer either.
Why do work places act so dumb ... so now when asked about barriers to employment, I am going to have to say over air conditioned buildings .... better safe than sorry with my neck. And companies write it off as a tax expense ... when they should change the settings.

hello @Appleblossom, I agree my friend
it is the same in hospitals , when mum says "it is cold in here " and you find out the aircon is going straight on her at 22 degrees and my mum is 87 and weighs 40kgs
come on , face the aircon up in the air on not on a frail patient
