”Many children in Klaksvík municipality are or have been infected, and we want to help them get out of the confines of their homes,” says Jóhanna Christiansen, of the council’s culture committee.

”We all need to get fresh air and have some fun, but this can be difficult these days. So we hope this initiative will help.”

Signs have been set up around the playground specifying that only Covid-infected people are allowed in the area.
