Using playgrounds during Covid-19 

  • If the playground you visit has not yet officially been opened, please do not attempt to use, or access the equipment or area
  • If the playground is busy, consider coming back at a later time. Talk to your children about this possibility before visiting
  • Social distancing should be followed and groups of parents and children should stay 2 metres apart if possible
  • The virus can be transmitted when you touch surfaces. If children use a playground they should be extra careful about hand hygiene and everyone should use an alcohol based hand sanitiser immediately before and after using the play equipment
  • Do not use playgrounds if you have Covid-19 symptoms such as a fever, cough, shortness of breath or lack or taste or smell
  • Encourage children to catch coughs or sneezes with a tissue or on their sleeve, not hands. Put tissues and used gloves in the bin
  • Remind children not to touch their face, eyes, nose or mouth
  • We recommend no eating and drinking in the play area for safety
  • The play equipment is inspected regularly but it is not sanitised
  • Consider bringing your own hygiene products to clean touch points such as swing chains and equipment handles
  • Do not drop litter, use the bins provided for all waste
  • We need all parents and children to behave responsibly in our playgrounds to prevent the spread of the virus
