According to current studies, it is suggested that exercising with a mask on (to reduce the spread of COVID-19) is fairly safe for healthy people. Someone who is, for the first time, wearing a mask while exercising should reduce the intensity of their workout in order to become accustomed to wearing a mask while exercising. During exercise, someone wearing a mask may feel like they are receiving or inhaling less oxygen, but this is just a psychological phenomenon. Having spare dry masks or wearing a mask that is sweat-resistant is a good idea. Exercising should be safe for healthy people as long as they are wearing a mask and are 6 to 10 feet away from other people.
