#StayAtHome #SocialDistancing


People visiting Wandsworth’s parks, commons and other outdoor spaces are being urgently reminded of the vital need to follow the latest medical advice on social distancing. The Government’s scientific and medical advisors have stressed the crucial importance of keeping a two metre gap between people in order to prevent any further spread of Coronavirus.

Many people are ignoring this advice and putting themselves and their family and friends at greater risk of contracting the disease. Parks are safe places and play an important role in keeping people physically and mentally well – now so more than ever.

There are therefore no current plans to close the borough’s parks and commons and they remain open for residents to take exercise and walk through. People should not however congregate in groups and they must observe the Government guidance on social distancing.

Anyone with symptoms of Covid 19 should not enter parks and any resident that is self-isolating should also not visit.
