This topic was in my queue for blog posts, but seems especially relevant in our current climate, with many people unsure of how concerned they need to be about the corona virus.

Have you ever felt a sniffle coming on and wondered whether you should work out?
It can be so confusing to know if you should exercise if you’re feeling a bit under the weather. I’m going to explain a few rules of thumb, plus outline some easy things you can do to avoid spreading or catching any “bugs.”
If you feel like you absolutely must workout, go for a walk and do some light stretches.
Also, no matter where your symptoms are, here’s something to keep in mind: you don’t want to spread your germs with others, so when it doubt, take a day or two off.
These tips from the Centers for Disease Control can help you avoid picking up germs as well as not spreading them.
You won’t lose any momentum on your fitness program if you take a day or two off to recover – and you’ll feel that much better in the long-run if you listen to your body!
The best course of action, of course, is to prevent illness as much as possible through healthy lifestyle choices. (And you’re actually a LOT less likely to get sick when you workout regularly :-))
