Playgrounds reopening

Published: 01 July 2020


Parents, Guardians and Carers must read this guidance and ensure their families follow it carefully for the safety of their children and others.

1. The equipment is checked regularly for damage and wear and tear but is not sanitised or disinfected.

2. This is shared equipment, used at your own risk and children should always be supervised.

3. Do not use the equipment if you or any member of your household has coronavirus symptoms or are self-isolating.

4. Make sure you have hand sanitiser with you before you enter the play area and make sure everyone with you uses it regularly and as a minimum before and after using the play area.

5. Encourage children to avoid touching their faces.

6. You MUST maintain social distancing from others unless they are from the same household – current advice is to maintain at least 1m and consider wearing a face mask.

7. Some equipment can only be used by one child at a time whilst social distancing. Please ensure your family waits at a safe distance if equipment is in use or return later to use the equipment.

8. Wash your hands when you get home.

We hope you enjoy using this play area and thank you for your help to keep everyone safe by following this guidance.
