The Government recently launched a new safety campaign alongside the easing of the lockdown restrictions. They state 'we are all much safer outdoors because COVID-19 particles are blown away' but urge the public to wash their hands, wear face coverings and to make space when meeting in the fresh air, to stop the spread of the disease.
