Carefully consider use of playgrounds, and help children follow guidelines.

In communities where there is ongoing spread of COVID-19, playgrounds can be hard to keep safe because:

They are often crowded and could make social distancing difficult;

It can be difficult to keep surfaces clean and disinfected;

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, can spread when young children touch contaminated objects, and then touch their eyes, nose, or mouth.

 

If you choose to visit a playground:

Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet away from people you don’t live with.

Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

Adults and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer: Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol and rub hands together until dry, if soap and water are not readily available.
