Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates and resources
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a huge impact on our lives and routines, and creating unprecedented financial hardships for the clubs and groups that support us to be active.
On these pages we're providing information and resources to support people of all ages and abilities to be active at home, and to support the physical activity sector to weather the impact of the pandemic.
Advice from the government and resources are updating rapidly, so please continue to check back for updated information.
COVID-19 - The most up to date advice
As of 12 October, every part of England is now in one of three Covid-19 alert tiers. Tier one (medium), Tier 2 (high) and Tier 3 (Very High) have different rules for participating in sports and physical activity, depending on where you live.
Local Covid Alert Levels - Tier System
People in Tier One areas may continue as before, with indoor sports adhering to the rule of six.
Those living in Tier 2 and Tier 3 areas may see some changes to this rule, with indoor sports limited to those within your household or social bubble. Whilst leisure facilities, including gyms have been allowed to reopen, this may change in Tier 3 areas which have been deemed at very high risk, depending on local approaches to business closure.
National governing body-approved organised team sport, outdoor exercise classes and licensed physical activities may continue as before, provided they operate in line with Covid-secure guidance.
Find more information on the Tier system here.
To find out what Tier your local area is in, and for more detailed guidance, check out the gov.uk website where you'll be able to enter your postcode for more specific information.
Resources to help you
The main takeaway from the government's advice is that we should continue to remain vigilant and practise physical activity safely. In line with local rules, it's important to remain active where you can, whether that means taking part in Covid-secure organised sports and activities, or taking charge of your own fitness.
Remember, you can still use our Virtual Activity Finder to take part in online classes from the comfort of your own home. Alternatively, visit our Active Outdoors page for lots of ideas and inspiration to enjoy being active outside in Norfolk's parks, countryside, and coast.
Helping others during the COVID-19 pandemic
The main priority is to keep yourself safe. Wash your hands regularly, wear a face mask where required and practise social distancing wherever you can. As well as this, make sure you keep in touch with your mental health, and ask for help if you need it. We will update this page regularly so you can see the latest government guidelines and advice as it's released.
If you're wanting to do a little bit more to help others, there are several safe ways of getting involved. You can check out local support groups near you which provide assistance to those who are less able to get out and about right now, or just check on your neighbours in a safe and considerate manner.
COVID-19 - What actions are we taking?
In light of the recent guidelines, we have taken a series of actions to help protect our staff, reduce the risk of the virus spreading and protect those that may have been booked onto future events.
We will work to update you by listing any significant cancellations or changes on this page.
Aside from these changes, the team have adapted their usual working arrangements and are taking additional care to protect their health by following the guidance provided by the government. We urge you to do the same.
Make sure you keep up to date with the latest government guidelines. All details regarding current recommendations can be found on the GOV.UK website.
