Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates & physical activity

Last updated: 05/01/2021

As the coronavirus pandemic evolves and the government continues to propose new rules in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus, the Active Suffolk team are working hard to keep the local sports and leisure sector updated whilst also providing useful tools and links to help you remain active during this challenging period.

Following the latest government announcement, the entire nation is now under lockdown. You now must only leave home where it is essential and you must keep a two metre distance from anyone, other than those in your household or support bubble.

Full details of the current rules can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home

Under the new rules, you are permitted to exercise outside once per day, either alone or with one other whilst sticking to the two metre distance rule. Unfortunately sport and leisure facilities must remain closed, however we have linked a number of online options for you and your families. Find out more by clicking here
