Is It Safe to Walk, Run, or Exercise While the Coronavirus Pandemic Is Going On?

For those who love to go for morning runs or sweat it out at the local park, the coronavirus pandemic should not pose a major hindrance. Of course, this will still depend on the situation in your area as far as coronavirus infection rates are concerned. But, generally speaking, going outside should still be OK even if there’s a stay-at-home order in effect in your area.

Remember, however, that there are things that you should not or cannot do anymore while the coronavirus outbreak is still going on. These include group runs or group workout sessions. Walks or short runs are relatively alright as long as you practice common sense and proper social distancing from other people.


How to Stay Safe When Exercising Outside

While we should all take the raging contagion seriously, remember that this isn’t the zombie apocalypse where hordes of flesh-eating zombies will come at you as soon as you step outside. It’s still safe to go out and soak in sunlight or get a breath of fresh air.

The main thing that you should always make sure of is that you’re either alone or at least six feet away from other people. Staying inside your home or lying in bed for too long isn’t healthy and will do more harm than good.

Remember these tips below so you can exercise outside safely during the coronavirus pandemic

  • A mask is a must.

It’s okay if you don’t wear one if you’re within the confines of your home and there’s no one else around. But if you’re going to roam around a bit (around your house, block, etc.) then you should always wear a mask, especially when other people are around. Better to be safe than sorry!

  • Walk or run solo — avoid other people.

If you’re going for a walk or a run, try to choose routes where you are less likely to encounter other people. If possible, go for a run early in the morning when most people are asleep. Put distance between yourself and others as much as you can, especially the people you’ll encounter along the way during your run.

  • Use common sense and follow set guidelines.

Nothing beats good old-fashioned common sense. If your area is a declared high-risk zone (high rate of transmission, confirmed COVID positive individuals, etc.), then play it safe and don’t risk going outside at all. Follow the quarantine protocols determined by officials in your area.
