Coronavirus Update: Crown Casino, Fitness Australia, LIWA Aquatics and gyms and theatres closed in the UK - 22nd March
Crown Resorts will close the main gaming floor at its Melbourne casino after it was stripped of its controversial exemption from social-distancing rules aimed at arresting the advance of Coronavirus.
Fitness Australia has launched ‘Keep on Moving’, a community awareness campaign to highlight the importance of keeping active and continuing a regular exercise routine.
The campaign emphasises the vital role fitness and regular moderate activity has on mental health and overall wellbeing, which, Fitness Australia says "is why continuing to be active during these worrying times can help with isolation, stress, anxiety and help support a person’s immune system".
