#BeActive during COVID-19

Published: March 25, 2020


‘As the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak continues, Sport Ireland are keeping the health and well-being of our staff, our sporting communities and the public at the forefront of our decision making.

We know that sport and physical activity is essential to our physical and mental wellbeing, our sense of positivity and our long term health. At Sport Ireland our mission is to continue supporting responsible sport and physical activity participation while minimising the spread of COVID-19 to flatten the infection curve.’

  • Try your best to #BeActive for at least 30 minutes a day, or 60 minutes a day for children
  • Wash your hands before and after being active, to avoid spreading or contracting the virus.
    Watch this to see how it should be done!
  • Gatherings in outdoor areas should be no more than four people, unless they are all from the same household.
  • Be sensible while exercising  – You can #BeActive in your garden, or just outside your front door, but you must keep yourself at least 2 metres away from people you don’t live with. If you’re going outside to get active you must do so within 5km of your home.

Follow @SportIreland on social media for ideas on how to #BeActive

Staying active is more important than ever right now, and even if you’re mostly in your house at the moment, there are plenty of ways you can still do so.  We have produced and collated some handy tips and exercise ideas to complete at home. These include walking ideas, challenges and exercise videos. There is something to suit all ages and abilities
Check them out below!
