What Level 5 means for Meath LSP & our activities!
As of Wednesday 21st October, certain public health restrictions came into effect which have had implications on how we continue to deliver our physical activity programmes.
Meath LSP recognise the importance which keeping physically active has on maintaining positive mental & physical health & well-being. During these challenging times, it is vital that each of us take time out of our days to be active for a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate physical activity per day (ideally outdoors). That could be 3 sessions of 10 minutes of activity – whether it is brisk walking, jogging, kicking a ball, skipping etc, once it is enough to raise your heart rate.
With immediate effect, our activity programmes will now move to outdoor settings. The good news is that the following activities are permitted under Level 5:
- Activity sessions for children & young people (max 14 +1 tutor)
- Activities in which individual family units can take part (staggered starts)
- Activities limited to two households (staggered starts)
Meath LSP fully appreciates the challenge involved in participating in programmes in outdoor settings, the challenge the shorter days, darker evenings and colder weather presents and the fact that we are trying to live with Covid-19!
Despite all of this, we need to be resilient, we need to be strong, we need to be mindful of what the restrictions are and we need to take every opportunity to ensure that we remain active as best we can. It`s tough enough that we have to live through a pandemic, let’s not allow some bad weather be the excuse which prevents from being active! If you wish to take part in our programmes, be prepared to wrap up well, to wear a rain proof jacket & runners. We’ll be there if you are!
