1. Always wear a mask
According to Dr Agarwal if you are going out for a walk or run you can wearr a thin-layered mask to protect yourself from contamination.
Although, various experts have a different take on it. According to some, it is not advisable to wrap your nose or mouth while exercising but if you are doing brisk walking then there is nothing to worry about.
2. Look for an isolated place
“If you want to run or exercise outdoors then look for a place which is not overcrowded. You can run on the roadside or near the coastline but you must avoid going to over crowded parks as there are higher chances of virus transmission there,” she says.
3. Choose a time when it’s breezy
According to Dr Agarwal, you should opt to go out for a run only when it’s windy. She says: “That breeze won’t let the virus settle in the environment and it makes the outdoors more suitable for exercising.”
4. Gyms are a big no-no right now
“Going to the gym or an indoor park is not advisable right now. Due to the air conditioning in the gym, you’ll become more prone to viruses. Plus, when you’re working out in the gym, it becomes very difficult to manage hand hygiene,” she suggests.
