Closed petition Ban the use of fireworks during the Covid-19 lockdown period.

During the lockdown period there is a countrywide motion, “Clap for the NHS”. Some have decided to set off fireworks for this celebration of our keyworkers. This has many detrimental effects on the very people it is allegedly supporting.

More details

As a key worker myself, I (like many others) HAVE to work unsociable hours to support the many who are currently isolating at home. Whilst the sentiment is acknowledged, setting fireworks off disrupts the sleep of those who currently need it the most and/or other young family members in the household.
Beyond this, there is a potential for an unnecessary increased traffic to our emergency departments at a time where we need to keep them free to help those suffering from Covid-19.
