An ultraviolet index reading above 11 indicates an extreme risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Unprotected skin risks burning in less than 10 minutes. Take all precautions because unprotected skin and eyes can burn in minutes. Tanning will be safest before 10am and after 4pm but only with a good application of sun screen. For those with sensitive skin stay in the shade and wear protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. Generously apply broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every 2 hours, even on cloudy days. Watch out for relections from water that may increase ultraviolet exposure.
