Brilliant graphic.

Shows clearly why things like going to the beach or hiking are very safe even sans mask, whereas an evening in the pub is moderate or high risk.

Also, masks in classrooms reduce risk from high to moderate (if crowded) or moderate to low (if reduced capacity)

It's just a great chart.

Move left within panel = enter safer environment

Move up within panel = do safer activity

Move to left hand panel = social distancing

Move up one panel = keep it brief

Move up two panels = mask up

Move upwards & leftwards to minimise risk ⬆️⬅️😇
