Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) has developed a set of 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for the early years (0 – 4), children and youth (5-17), adults (18-64) and for older adults (65+). These guidelines show us what a healthy 24-hour period looks like – including physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep recommendations. You can find more detailed information on our Physical Activity pages for:

POTENTIAL EXPOSURE TO COVID-19?

If you are concerned about potential exposure to a positive case of COVID-19, please be reassured that any contacts of a confirmed case will be contacted directly and monitored by public health.

Low-risk and indirect contacts should self monitor for symptoms for 10 days from the time of potential exposure and seek testing if symptoms develop. Low risk contacts do not need to isolate unless symptoms develop, and can continue to attend school/work/daycare while monitoring for symptoms.
