The Government on 18 November launched a new public information campaign to highlight how letting fresh air into indoor spaces can reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus by over 70%.
The campaign, which forms part of wider ‘Hands. Face. Space’ guidance, sees the release of a new short film created with scientists and an engineer at the University of Leeds.
The film illustrates how coronavirus lingers in the air in spaces with no fresh air, increasing the risk of people breathing in infected particles, and how the risk can be reduced significantly by regularly ventilating enclosed areas.

Updated guidance for parents and carers
We have updated our guidance for parents and carers on what they need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. This update provides information on school admission appeals, entry tests for selective schools, and exams and assessments in the autumn term.
We have also provided further information on the use of face coverings in schools and links to online resources that are available to help parents, carers and children with their mental health and wellbeing.

You can use our walking maps and tools to get around:
- Plan your journey to find out how to get from A to B and choose walking speeds
- Check journeys that are quicker to walk between lots of central London stations and see walking times and steps between zones 1 and 2
- See walking routes between shops and attractions that are less than 20 minutes in the West End
- Look out for Legible London signs on streets which show walking maps for short journeys
