Watch out for Sneezing Kids

Ross from Silverdale

I was out for a run on the Te Ara Tahuna Estuary cycleway and walkway this morning about 10.30 - 10.45 and there were a couple of young boys coming towards me on scooters. They didn't keep a good distance (stayed in the centre of the path) and one of them sneezed without covering his mouth right as he passed me. He even sneezed in my direction. I didn't see any parents with them, but I urge all parents to teach their kids about the importance of social distancing and more importantly covering their mouths properly when sneezing. In fact this kid probably shouldn't have been out in public if he's sneezing. If you're the parent of a kid who was on the pathway on his scooter with a friend and was wearing a white sleevless t-shirt, please talk to him about this. We need to be more careful!
