  5. Face masks are to be worn at all times. Mask removal is allowed only when drinking and eating when outside, but not permitted if it is done while a person is walking. As from Monday, 17th January 2022, fully vaccinated people, (booster dose), alone or with one other person don’t need to wear masks outdoors;
  6. Social distancing should be observed at all times throughout the Campsite;
