The abrupt closure of gyms and recreational facilities, coupled with limited access to public parks and trails, has made it much more difficult to exercise. In response, researchers at McMaster University are developing exercise protocols to help combat the anxiety and mental stress brought on by social isolation, physical distancing and the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Their research will be used to create an evidence-based physical activity toolkit, available in July.
