Preventive Role of Exercise Across the Coronavirus Pandemic


 

US Fire Administration

“An assumed occupant load factor of greater than 113 square feet per person indicates that the building could potentially practice social distancing without any impact on the number of people present in the building.”

 

Indoor sporting facilities are quite large by nature. For example, the facility in Bremerton is 50,000 sq ft and contains two (2) large fields and one (1) small field.  One field on its own is over 13,760 sq ft.  Recent Covid-19 protocols implemented reduced total players on the field down to twelve (12).  The square footage allotted per player is in excess of 1,140 sq ft.

Following the science, we have created a situation where we have ten times (10x) the amount of square footage allotted per person for social distancing standards.  The chances of close contact as defined by the CDC is infinitesimal.

0.00043% of overall infections from athletes / 0.5% of athletes infected transmitted from playing (1 person)

A survey was completed by 207 Wisconsin schools that had restarted sports and included data from over 30,000 athletes participating in over 16,000 practices and 4,000 games during the month of September.  In the study, schools were also asked to report the source of the transmission of any positive cases among players. Two known sources made up nearly 96% of the transmissions – Household contacts (55%) and Community Contact (40.7%). Sport contact made up just 0.5% of transmissions (in this instance - 1 case).  This is consistent with information coming out of the NCAA, according to Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated, that “Medical experts in the college sports world say they have no evidence of on-field transmission of the virus.”  

 

CDC - “Close Contact”

The CDC defines a Covid-19 close contact as someone who: Spent a total of 15 minutes or more → within 6 feet of a Covid-19 case → during a 24-hour period.

MAYO CLINIC

https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/depression/in-depth/depression-and-exercise/art-20046495

Depression and anxiety symptoms often improve with exercise.

Exercise helps prevent and improve a number of health problems, including high blood pressure, diabetes and arthritis. Research on depression, anxiety and exercise shows that the psychological and physical benefits of exercise can also help improve mood and reduce anxiety.

The links between depression, anxiety and exercise aren't entirely clear — but working out and other forms of physical activity can definitely ease symptoms of depression or anxiety and make you feel better. Exercise may also help keep depression and anxiety from coming back once you're feeling better.
