Due to Covid-19, and the risk of spreading the virus, all of Nelson’s water fountains are being temporarily turned off.

Please also avoid using any picnic tables and park benches, as any non-essential touching of surfaces can spread the virus.

As you can imagine there are hundreds of tables and benches around Nelson and it’s simply not possible to cordon them all off, but please use your common sense and treat them as off limits.

As our Prime Minister has advised, act as if you have COVID-19, treat any public surface as a potential avenue to passing on the disease, and let’s keep each other safe.
