GREEN BAY — The Packers want their fans to stay warm this Sunday as they take on the Bears at Lambeau Field.
Free Kwik Trip hot chocolate will be available at about 40 concessions locations throughout the stadium on Sunday, with free hot cider also available in sections 105, 106, 133, 134, 326 and 427.
With temperatures dipping into the upper-teens on Sunday, Bellin Health is providing tips to staying warm in the friendly confines of Lambeau:
- Dress appropriately: Hypothermia and frostbite can occur even without subzero temperatures. Wear loose, dry layers, but don't overdress. Give yourself the opportunity to shed layers to adjust to weather changes. Try a mix of cotton or wool underneath, with something waterproof on top. Be sure to wear a hat and mittens, as well as comfortable, waterproof, insulated boots.
- Drink warm beverages, and as always, drink alcoholic beverages in moderation or not at all. Alcohol prevents the body from generating heat and can cause dehydration, which leaves one more susceptible to cold weather.
- In addition, watch for warning signs of hypothermia, such as severe shivering, dizziness, drowsiness and confusion. Learn the signs of frostbite and seek medical attention immediately if you notice grayish, white or yellowed skin, pain or numbness, or waxy skin.
The Green Bay Packers take on the Chicago Bears Sunday at noon.
