Coronavirus (COVID-19) and This Girl Can – Victoria


How women can get active during the coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions

While we stay at home to help reduce the risk of infection from coronavirus (COVID-19), exercise is as important as ever to help keep us healthy.

We’re exploring different ways of delivering activities and inspiration to you, such as via digital channels, starting with our 30-minute online dance class by our ambassador Jagriti, who is a qualified Bollywood dance instructor.

Subscribe to our inspiration email series for women with updates on available online activities.

We’ll also share inspiration from our ambassadors, like Sana who exercises at home with her children, Sarah who enjoys the calm of yoga, and Tracy who walks her dogs (now while staying 1.5 metres away from others!).

We hope this will inspire you to try adding some exercise into your day while you’re staying at home, because regular physical activity is great for your mental and physical health.

Of course, if you’re feeling unwell please stay home and check the Department of Health and Human Services advice.

What’s happening with This Girl Can Week?

Due to the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Victoria, VicHealth has postponed This Girl Can Week – Victoria 2020 until further notice.   

How can This Girl Can help me during coronavirus (COVID-19)?

For some women, this could be a good opportunity to give a new activity a go at home, or get back into doing some physical activity after a break.

Remember, This Girl Can – Victoria campaign is all about encouraging women to get active whenever and however they choose. It doesn’t matter what you look like, or how good you are, all that matters is you’re giving it a go and focussing on how getting active feels.

And we’ll be here, cheering you on.
