Spring Sports are Starting!
COVID-19: Exercise and Clearance
Our families at New Canaan Pediatrics enjoy some form of physical activity, whether on a field, ice rink, court, or gym class. All of us at NCP encourage our families to “keep active” to help improve overall health and wellness. However, if your child or adolescent/young adult has had COVID-19 and is returning to sports and hasn’t been seen by their doctor, we ask that you schedule a Sports Clearance Post COVID-19 appointment with your pediatrician to help ensure a safe return to sports.
Also, there have been reports indicating that exercise in patients who are currently positive for COVID-19 can be harmful. For more information on exercising with COVID-19 and a safe return to sports CLICK HERE
