Active at Home:

Being stuck at home all day can make it harder to get active. Try some of the following to keep your activity levels high and boredom low!

Looking up workouts or ways to get active online? Make sure it is coming from a credible source! Look for websites that end in .gov, .org, or .edu or if you look on Youtube make sure that the person you are listening to is a certified fitness professional!

Basic Recommendations for Protecting Yourself:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Practice social distancing by keeping at least 6-feet between yourself and others when possible
  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow. Wash your hands immediately after.
