EurekAlert: Study suggests wearing a face mask during intense exercise is safe for healthy people

EurekAlert: Study suggests wearing a face mask during intense exercise is safe for healthy people. “Researchers carried out detailed testing on breathing, heart activity and exercise performance in a group of 12 people while they were using an exercise bike with and without a mask. Although they found differences in some measurements between wearing a mask and not wearing a mask, they say that none of their results indicate any risk to health. This suggests that masks could be worn safely during intense exercise, for example to reduce COVID-19 transmission between people visiting an indoor gym.”
