While sporting events, games, and league play will remain a no-go in phase one of Alberta's relaunch, there is the opportunity to enjoy some outdoor activities.
Dr. Deena Hinshaw, chief medical officer of health, expanded on the ratio behind limited anything that brings people in close contact, especially with the amount of heavy breathing involved in physical activity.
"That close contact needs to be avoided at this time, again because physical exertion does increase that risk when people are breathing heavily. We've seen instances of very large outbreaks globally from things such as fitness classes that are happening with large groups of people indoors who are working out. We can see that that kind of activity brings risks."
Things like running, single tennis, pickleball, and badminton, as well as skateboarding, are among the outdoor activities permitted.
Activities like soccer, football, or martial arts are not permitted in stage one unless organizers can modify practicing the components of these activities to meet public health orders and physical distancing requirements.
For example, individual practice is OK, but team play is not allowed.
