Will the children need to maintain 2 metres distance between each other?

Children attending early years settings have not been advised to maintain social distance. Not only would this be impossible to enforce, it brings many negative effects for this age group. We do not want children to learn that it is normal that children cannot play together or that there cannot be any physical contact. This could result with children growing up with a distorted picture of society, with potentially negative consequences. Instead to reduce transmission risk we will reduce contact between people as much as possible.
