Can we wear a mask to run outside?

Face mask restricts ventilation. It is normal, if your workout feels harder than usual. Try choosing an easy track or not going for as long. Listen to your body and let it adapt. Stop and rest when you feel the exhaustion is too much to handle. A mask may irritate and abrade your skin a little bit during movement. Wash your face after a workout and don’t reuse the mask. If you are concerned with own chronic diseases, for example asthma and sensitive skin, consult your family doctor before commencing.

An alternative way is to wear a mask out, find a suitable place where there is nobody else. You may take off the mask and exercise. Make sure you maintain good hand hygiene practice before and after handling your mask, and don’t touch your face during exercise.
