The UV Index is how we measure the sunburn-producing UV (ultraviolet) rays from the sun at any specific location and or time of day. The lower the number, the lower the danger; the higher the number, the stronger the harmful rays of the sun.

It’s a great way to help avoid overexposure to the sun.

UV Index Exposure Estimated Sunburn Time (*can vary by skin type)
0-2 Low More than an hour
3-5 Medium 30-45 minutes
6-7 High About 30 minutes
8-10 Very High About 20 minutes
11+ Extreme Less than 10 minutes
