How to Stay Safe During Athletic Activity and Sports
Individual sports/activities such as running, walking, biking, swimming, golf, tennis, and more.
Keep at least 6 feet of space between people from other households.
Try to find trails or paths for running, walking or biking that are not crowded. This may mean going during times that are less crowded, such as early or late in the day.
While doing activities by yourself or with members of your household where you may breathe heavily, such as running or biking, it is alright to not wear a mask. When participating in sports or physical exercise indoors, such as at a gym or fitness center, you don’t have to wear a mask if you are doing an activity where you breathe heavily as long as you can keep 6 feet of space between yourself and other people. Wear a mask in areas like a parking lot where keeping space between people may be difficult.
Try to minimize sharing items and equipment, and if you do, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol once you are done.
As much as possible, only play team sports or group activities with people from your household if you cannot keep at least 6 feet of space between people from other households.
