A simple yet effective way of reducing the risk. Remember, exercise is allowed outside of your home but limited to two people (from different households) and you must stay 1.5 metres away from each other.
Are your kids still riding or walking to school? It may seem silly with most schools ‘pupil free’ now, but why not send your older kids out for a small walk or ride before ‘school’ starts. It will help them to retain their confidence and independence through this time.
If you have younger kids, why not send them out the back door and meet them at the front door? It can help to define school time from home time and help to find their recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day!
