Should runners wear a face mask outdoors?

  Should runners wear a face mask outdoors? Should runners wear a face mask outdoors? It depends. You won’t always need a face covering while jogging or riding a bike if you're exercising with no one around, but it’s good to carry one just in case. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends people wear cloth face coverings when out in public, especially in places where it's hard to stay at least 6 feet away from others. If it’s difficult to breathe through a mask when running or doing other strenuous physical activity, find uncrowded trails or times to exercise when you won’t encounter others, says Mark Cameron, an infectious disease expert at Case Western Reserve University.
