A SPECIAL NOTICE TO FORMOSA RESIDENTS REGARDING THE COVID-19 CRISIS
A SPECIAL NOTICE TOFORMOSA RESIDENTS REGARDING THE COVID-19 CRISIS
Boris Johnson’s “road map” out of lockdown continues on track with the re-opening of non-essential shops & beer gardens among other amenities.
Of most significance to users of the Formosa Garden has been the re-instatement of the so-called “rule of six” by which six people or two households are once again allowed to meet in an outside setting including private gardens. But the social distancing requirement remains in force, which is for individuals to stay at least two metres apart or where that is not possible one metre apart with the added precaution of a face covering.
To help enforce this rule in the Formosa Garden we have requested that walkers and joggers using the pathways go in a clockwise direction to reduce the possibility of contact. Joggers approaching walkers should overtake them by using the garden turf to ensure a two-metre wide gap. All children under the age of six must be accompanied by at least one parent to ensure the distancing rule is observed.
The next big milestone on the route out of lockdown is May 17 -- when restaurants & cinemas re-open & overnight stays away from home are once again allowed -- and the ultimate aim, if infection rates remain relatively low & the vaccination programme continues to roll out smoothly, is for all legal limits on social contact to be scrapped by June 21st.
