Expert Advice on Wearing a Facemarks While Training: A Q&A – From Under Armour

LifeBridge Health's Chief of Innovation Gives Advice to Athletes Returning to Workouts

The UA SPORTSMASK was born back in March soon after Under Armour began manufacturing face masks to support the needs of personal protective equipment (PPE) within health care and community organizations to help fight the spread of COVID-19. An organization that relied on UA's support was LifeBridge Health, a regional health care organization based in Baltimore.

As COVID-19 stay-at-home orders ease and athletes of all levels consider returning to their pre-pandemic workouts, questions remain about how to do so safely.

Dr. Daniel J. Durand, Chief Innovation Officer for LifeBridge, answers some common questions about exercising while wearing a mask to provide clarity amidst confusion and help guide athletes looking to get back in the game.

Please note, Under Armour advises all athletes to refer to CDC guidelines for the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 safety.
