Canadians are being asked to stay home and practice physical distancing to decrease the spread of COVID-19 in their communities.  We know these new restrictions have the potential to impact the physical and mental wellbeing of residents in Algoma.  It is more important than ever to engage in a healthy lifestyle, which includes getting in activity, limiting sedentary time, getting a good night’s sleep and eating well. 


Importance of Getting Moving


During these uncertain times for which we have little control, we do have control over our behaviours. Getting active, moderating screen time, and ensuring a consistent bedtime routine with sufficient sleep duration while adhering carefully to public health guidance can help cope, contain, and combat COVID-19.
