Guidance and Advice - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The single most important action we can all take, in fighting coronavirus, is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. For further advice provided by the Isle of Wight Council please visit our Public Health Coronavirus (COVID-19) web pages.

Staying active

Taking daily exercise can be important for both physical and mental health but there are a few points to remember before you go out.

  • Do not meet with anybody from outside your household.
  • Do not gather in public areas especially Play parks, Skate parks, and other social spaces.
  • If you do encounter other people while outside you should stay at lease 2m apart.
  • Always  wash your hands as soon as you return home.
