With the spread of coronavirus continuing in the UK, the LEGO Group has contacted retailers and advised them to remove play tables and loose LEGO bricks from stores. The risk, of course, is that someone who is contaminated might handle the bricks and pass the virus on to other customers. As a precaution, the retailers are being encouraged to remove such activities for the time being.
The UK government has not yet recommended the closing of schools or universities, or the cancelling of public gatherings. In the meantime, such precautionary measures are being enacted by various businesses.
