Can my kids play safely outside?
Yes, it’s certainly safe for children to play outdoors. Personal hygiene – like not letting them put dirty fingers or toys in their mouths – will help minimise any exposure. Regular hand washing as soon as children come indoors, and before they eat, is essential. Washing down outside toys and play equipment also helps to reduce exposure.
