Gwinnett County has opened five warming stations for residents to receive temporary, overnight relief from long-term exposure to forecasted temperatures of 35 degrees and below.

When activated, warming stations are operational from 6:00 pm to 7:00 am, allowing residents to warm up, eat a meal, and get some rest.
