Advice from Sefton’s Director of Public Health on staying safe when meeting others outdoors

With better weather and better days ahead, we’re looking forward to more people being able to spend time in our parks and greenspaces as well as at the Sefton coast, but we need everyone to be cautious and responsible – COVID-19 measures remain in place even when getting outdoors.

Here’s some advice from our Director of Public Health Margaret Jones.

How to stay safe when meeting with others outdoors

  • Remember to socially distance
  • Don’t share equipment (sports or picnic items)
  • Only those in your household or bubble in your car
  • Wear masks properly – covering your mouth and nose – if using public transport
  • Stay local as we’re only at the early stages of coming out of lockdown

Making outdoor plans for this Easter weekend or school holidays – stay local

We’re asking you to be considerate to others, to stay local & minimise travel.

Let’s get tested

With lots of people making plans to see friends and family outdoors this Easter, a reminder to get tested if you have symptoms.
