Ottawa Public Health’s frostbite alert is still in effect this morning as temperatures are forecasted to be minus 25 or below with the windchill.

The alert was issued yesterday and OPH encouraged people to stay warm.

OPH recommends that those venturing outside should dress in layers, wear a hat, mittens and a scarf in order to avoid frostbite and hypothermia.

The first sign of frostbite is pink or reddish coloured skin, followed by pain in affected areas. OPH suggests that people seek immediate medical attention if signs progress to white or grey skin discolouration or numbness.
