Covid-19: Guidance for managing playgrounds and outdoor gyms

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has issued guidance for managing playgrounds and outdoor gyms.

The guidance is of a general nature and should be treated as a guide; in the event of any conflict between any applicable legislation (including the health and safety legislation) and this guidance, the applicable legislation shall prevail.

This guidance provides the owners and operators responsible for playgrounds and outdoor gyms with practical advice on how these can be reopened and managed effectively to enable their use while minimising the transmission risk of Covid-19.

Public health is devolved in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. This guidance should be considered alongside local public health and safety requirements.

Owners/operators of playgrounds and outdoor gyms in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland should refer to guidance prepared by the Northern Ireland Executive, the Scottish Government and the Welsh Government.
