How can I protect my child when they go out for exercise or to school?

In addition to wearing a mask for children two years and over:

  • Remind your children to physically distance by keeping about 1-2 metres away from other people, including their friends.
  • Do not use playground equipment or other things strangers may have touched.
  • Hand sanitise frequently and wash your childrens’ hands when they return home.

Teach your children:

  • how to safely use hand sanitiser: rub hands until it they are completely dry.
  • how to safely wash their hands: wet their hands, rub soap for 20 seconds while singing a favourite song, and rinse.
  • respiratory hygiene. This means coughing or sneezing into their bent elbow covering mouth and nose, or into a tissue which they must then throw straight away into a closed container and then wash their hands.
  • to avoid touching their faces.
