Returning to exercise safely post Covid-19

When you have been unwell with COVID-19, and have not been exercising or moving around much, your body can easily fatigue. Exercising at a high intensity too soon may prolong your recovery or heighten symptoms.

It is important that you return to exercise safely. We recommend people returning to exercise start slowly and at a lower intensity and gradually build up. Listen to your body and remember to treat it kindly.

See the University Recreation return to exercise safely document for more information.
