ISCA newsletter March 2020: As we face an extended period of time indoors or restricted in our communities, ISCA and our members share their tips on how to keep active for our mental and physical wellbeing.

ISCA comment regarding the COVID-19 outbreak

ISCA understands the severity and urgency of the situation with the coronavirus pandemic worldwide. We acknowledge that drastic measures are needed to address the situation, and we remain at disposal to support the critical health and safety measures and precautions that are needed and advised by public and health authorities.

We respect the hardship that countries and citizens are going through in these weeks and months, and understand that physical activity is not a direct remedy. At the same time, physical activity may contribute to our overall wellbeing, sense of positivity and long term health, and we believe a key contribution from ISCA is to continue promoting this, even in times of hardship. This is what we will do.

ISCA will continue its promotion of health-enhancing physical activities in the weeks ahead. We will adapt our communications and campaigns, including No Elevators Day and MOVE Week, to focus on activities that can be performed indoors at home or outdoors at a safe social distance. 

This newsletter shares some of these initiatives, and please feel free to contact us if you know of more.
