    Public to keep it active locally 24 March 2020

    Public Urged to Stay Local if Getting Active Outside (via Outdoors Recreation NI)

    Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland is urging the public to stay local if getting active outside during the COVID–19 outbreak.

    Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland has joined a group of 35 leading national outdoor activity, tourism, nature, health and rescue organisations, to come together to back the Prime Minister’s call for the public to behave responsibly while exercising outside. In a joint statement, the group offers support to the Government and advises the nation on how to stay active safely during the COVID–19 outbreak.

    During the daily COVID–19 news conference on Sunday, Boris Johnson stated:

    “It is very important for people’s mental and physical wellbeing that they should be able to get out and exercise if they possibly can, and many, many people do not have access to private green spaces…That’s why parks, open spaces are so absolutely crucial for our country and for our society, but when we do that we have to do it responsibly.”

    He warned the public that they need to follow social distancing guidelines, or the Government will be forced to restrict access to more open spaces.

    Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland is a not–for–profit organisation with the vision to ‘Creating a happier, healthier society where enjoyment and appreciation of the outdoors improves wellbeing.’

    “We exist to make it easier for people to responsibly enjoy the outdoors and never before has the word responsibly been more important.  We therefore endorse the industry statement and our keen to urgently communicate as widely as possible” stressed Dr. Caro–Lynne Ferris, Executive Director, Outdoor Recreation Northern Ireland
