Dorset Daily Dose
Latest Government Advice
The latest government advice now allows people to exercise more than once a day in groups of up to six people, as long as people from different households observe social distancing by keeping two metres apart.
Sport England have further collated key information in relation to sport and physical activity guidelines and to read more about what you 'can' and 'cannot' do since the latest government guidelines please click here.
Many facilities associated with outdoor sports and physical activities can now reopen, if those responsible for them feel ready to do so and if they can do so safely. Each venue, including council-owned sports facilities, should make their own decisions about when their facilities are ready. To find out more information and guidance please click here.
Now more than ever, it is so important to keep active and to look after our mental health, therefore we have put together the Dorset Daily Dose whereby we will share, create and connect top tips to help you get your daily dose of physical activity and look after your mental wellbeing.
Each day will provide a daily dose of:
- Top tips to keep active
- Challenges and tasks for your body and mind
- Connecting people and their stories
We'd love to her how you are keeping active and looking after your wellbeing, so please share your creative ideas with us on social media using #DorsetDailyDose
