Regular physical activity benefits both the body and mind, and is especially important for everyone at Johns Hopkins as we face the challenges of COVID-19. The Johns Hopkins Medicine Office of Well-Being has collected these resources* on physical activity. Also, refer to helpful guidance from the World Health Organization and the American College of Sports Medicine on staying active and healthy under COVID-19.
