Coronavirus - Age Cymru guidance for healthy ageing volunteers and older people

The Coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, is affecting many aspects of life in Wales at the moment. All organisations need to assess the advice that Welsh Government has provided and make judgements as to how this will affect them.

Following a detailed risk assessment and our concern for the welfare of our clients and volunteers, Age Cymru has taken the decision to postpone all healthy ageing classes. This applies to all our exercise classes including Nordic Walking, Tai Chi, and Low Impact Functional Training (LIFT).

We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further advice for all our staff and volunteers.

In the meantime we advise all older people to follow the information provided by Public Health Wales which is to maintain the highest possible standards of hygiene, particularly with hand-washing. Catch any coughs or sneezes with a tissue, or sleeve, and bin the tissue as soon as possible. At the same time avoid touching the face and shaking hands with others.

Finally, we would urge everyone to keep up to date with the latest advice from Government which is accessible on our Coronavirus webpage.
