Exercise is good! but be careful around others.
Studies show that moderate exercise can increase immune function.
Can outdoor exercise increase transmission of COVID-19?
Maybe. The number of viral particles increases due to heavier breathing. But you can decrease that risk.
- Increase physical distancing beyond 6 feet to avoid viral particles breathed out by walkers, runners, and cyclists.
- Avoid walking directly behind people not in your household.
- Avoid exercising in areas that are highly populated.
