If you want to exercise while wearing a cloth face mask, you can do it safely, a new study says.

Researchers from the University of Saskatchewan in Canada found that wearing a triple-layer face mask during a strenuous workout will not affect exercise performance or have a detrimental effect on blood or muscle oxygen.

It’s noteworthy for gym users “since respiratory droplets may be propelled further with heavy breathing during vigorous exercise and because of reports of COVID-19 clusters in crowded enclosed exercise facilities,” Chilibeck and his colleagues said.

“It might also allow sports to continue, including hockey, where transmission of COVID-19 appears to be high,” he said in a university news release.
