Ways to get moving during COVID-19

This information was last updated 3 July 2020.

You can now leave your home to exercise and spend time outdoors for recreation with your household or in groups of up to 6 people from outside your household.

From 4 July, up to two households are permitted to gather in groups of more than 6 people indoors or outdoors, provided members of different households can follow social distancing guidelines. 

From 4 July outdoor gyms and playgrounds can open. Indoor facilities should be kept closed, apart from toilets and throughways. Outdoor and indoor swimming pools will also remain closed to the public.

Read the government sport and recreation guidance for the full guidance. 

However if you are have Coronavirus symptoms or have tested positive for Coronavirus, you should stay at home. This is critical to staying safe and saving lives.

Team sports

People who play team sports can now meet to train together and do things like conditioning or fitness sessions but they must be in wholly separate groups of no more than 6 and follow social distancing guidelines.

While groups could practice ball skills like passing and kicking, equipment sharing should be kept to a minimum and strong hand hygiene practices should be in place before and after.

Physical contact with anyone outside of your household is still not permitted.
