On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 to be a global pandemic. Shortly after this time, many countries entered a pause, lockdown, or shelter in place. Since that time, exercise and physical activity behavior has changed to a high proportion of at-home and virtual workouts. Additionally, while the WHO does not recommend wearing a mask while exercising and the Center for Disease and Control Prevention in the United States recognizes that it may be difficult to wear a mask during high intensity physical activities, there are many governing bodies that require the use of a face mask during physical activity in public areas.
For this Special Issue “Physical Activity during the COVID-19 Pandemic” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, we invite submissions that examine issues related to physical activity during the COVID-19 pandemic (physiological or psychosocial). We also welcome submissions on Special Issues related to physical activity behavior during COVID-19 and the impact of physical activity while wearing a face covering. High-quality narrative and systematic reviews will also be considered. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field and are due in March 2022.
