Factsheet: COVID-19 and Physical Activity

The Institute of Public Health has launched a new factsheet series providing evidence relating to COVID-19 and key public health topics. Each factsheet is a ‘snapshot’ based on a review of available evidence at the time of writing. The factsheets will be routinely reviewed and periodically updated. 

The Institute is currently assisting the Departments of Health, North and South, with evidence review and policy development on the impact of COVID-19 and related Public Health and Social Measures (PHSM) on population health. This factsheet provides a summary of evidence relating to COVID-19 and physical activity.
