While at no greater risk of getting sick with COVID-19, people with lung diseases like COPD are at higher risk for becoming seriously ill if they do become infected. Continuing your respiratory therapy is an important way to stay healthy. As many pulmonary groups are suspending programs during this outbreak, we do not want social distancing to stop you from getting the exercise you need! There are a number of ways you can continue your pulmonary rehab at home.
We put together a number of resources to keep you moving in your own home. We encourage you to talk to your health care provider if you have any concerns about what exercises or activity will work best for you.

care of their bodies whether that be through regular exercise, meditation, or healthy eating.
