Keeping fit and well during COVID-19
The Irish proverb, “Ar scáth a chéile, a mhaireann na daoine” literally means that people live in the shadow of one another.
As the challenging life changes posed by COVID-19 continue, we are reminded of our interdependence. To overcome these challenges we must all work together and continue the good work to overcome COVID-19. But there is lots we can do to stay active, stay connected, and stay well.
The #InThisTogether Campaign Kerry is building on the concept of doing something that makes people feel a little healthier and a little happier. Kerry County Council has developed a programme of activities for the coming weeks to support people of all ages during this challenging period.
At local level, a programme of activities will be rolled out over the coming weeks which has been developed by a group comprising of the Healthy Kerry Programme, Kerry Public Participation Network, Kerry Age Friendly Programme, Kerry Recreation and Sports Partnership, Kerry Library, Kerry Museum. These activities can be pursued at home, or in your locality within the Government restrictions, by yourself or with family members, or with friends online. There are ideas and activities for people of all ages and the aim is support people in Kerry to stay physically active, stay connected with friends and family and to look after mental wellbeing.
