Bahrain urges public to run or exercise outside alone

Getting enough exercise is incredibly important for keeping your body fit, but it’s also beneficial for your mental health.

With official advice from the government of Bahrain telling residents to stay inside except to go to work, to visit the hospital or to buy essential items, you might be wondering whether or not you’re allowed to exercise outside.

According to Interior Ministry guidelines published yesterday (March 24), you can go outside for a run on public roads, but you should do so individually, or with one other person at most.

If you are running or working out with someone else, you must keep the appropriate social distance between you - at least one metre - and children cannot be taken along.

And if you prefer to stay inside, we’ve also got three home workouts for you to do while social distancing.
