Are you putting up one way signs in your garden?

And marker tape on the floor?

We are only allowed 5 guests maximum (including you is 6). It seems totally unnecessary to implement a whole "system" like this for a small bbq or gathering!

The BBC advice to set a timer every 45 minutes and to tell your guests to have a wash and put up a sign saying “wash your hands.”

I’ve ordered 50 of these to be on the safe side: www.seton.co.uk/wash-your-hands-please-signs.html#MD058GSAV

My garden is pretty small so I've orderd 6 of these for added protection over our heads gringringrin

The BBC article is actually fairly sensible
Talks about risk levels for different people- e.g. if you're a 70 year old overweight male, you need to be more careful than a 20 year old, healthy weight female. So few articles discuss things in these terms which is silly really.
It also has things like "ideally you would do X, but if it's not practical try to do Y"

The second one is way OTT

I've filled the paddling pool with zoflora and ask that people dip themselves like sheep upon entering.

Where exactly should you wash your hands every 45 min if you aren’t allowed in the house?!

Can't guests use the outdoor tap for washing?

MigGril Sat 30-May-20 11:40:43

Outside tap if you have one, water doesn't have to be hot. Just need soap as well.

I’m issuing these to all my guests at the gate prior to entry to my garden.

allthepeoplethatcomearound Sat 30-May-20 11:44:22

Ooh, didn’t think about the outdoor tap!

I need a hands free version of that safety tent, plus a smaller one for Ddog.

Everyone just started rolling up to ours now

Or how about we just wait until the R is lower and the alert level is lower and this can be done without all the faffing about.

I think bringing your own coleslaw is the clinching safety message
