COVID-19: Physical Activity Key Messages

Key messaging from Public Health Scotland on Physical Activity during the phases of Covid-19 as of 31st of August 2020.

 It is recognised that there is an immediate need to provide credible, up to date information and advice around physical activity to support the Scottish public during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). These messages will be circulated to stakeholders for use at their discretion and can be adapted appropriately to fit the relevant context. Public Health Scotland (PHS), in collaboration with stakeholders including Scottish Government Active Scotland Division, SportScotland, Paths for All and the University of Edinburgh Physical Activity for Health Research Centre have facilitated the development of these key physical activity related public health messages for the general population. The key messages focus on encouraging and enabling people to be active at home and or when physical distancing outside (subject to Scottish Government Guidance).  

 A PDF copy of these key messages can be found in the 'Attachments' section below.
