Covid-19 has completely changed our lives, and for the most part it has not been for the better. We hope this short checklist helps you stay safe while having fun with your family or loved ones at the garden festival or flower show in 2021.

1- Face Mask

The face mask is one of the most important weapons in the war with covid-19. Following the guidelines of the World Health Organization, we can no longer go to the super market without a mask. Therefore, if you do not have a face mask with you, you will probably not be allowed to enter the event. Let’s say you are given permission and you will not feel comfortable and you will not feel safe anyway. Also, your face mask could get ripped or dirty and you may have to change it. For this reason, in 2021, be sure to have a face mask and a backup with you wherever you go, not while participating in simple garden festivals and flower shows.

 

2- Face Shield

Although social distance rules are followed at events that are expected to be crowded, such as garden festivals or flower shows, being extra careful does not hurt anyone. For this reason, it will be in your best interest to use Face Shild for such social events in addition to the face mask. At least you will feel safer and be able to enjoy the event.

 

3- Hand Sanitiser Gel

It is also useful to have a snack with you, as cafes or restaurants may be closed during your visit or you may not prefer to eat there because of the crowd. Even if it is not for you, if you have a child with you, it is useful to have a snack with you.

 

4- Bottle of Water

A sunny and hot day is an ideal day for a garden festival or flower show. If you have a bottle of water with you, you can prevent a hot or cold day from ruining due to thirst. Also, there may not be an open shop close by due to covid-19.

 

5- Snacks
