Safe sports for kids during Covid-19

Parent Interventions

Are you wondering what sports are okay to do during COVID-19? Are some sports safer than others? To help you, Children's National Hospital, based in Washington D.C., USA has put together a list of sports and their relative risk factors. Before you or your kids engage in any sports, you should carefully consider the unique risks associated with each sport. In general, the following factors determine the risk of COVID-19 transmission:

Physical closeness: proximity, frequency, duration

Setting (indoor vs outdoor) and the ability to ventilate

Shared equipment

Ability to social distance when not in play

Size of team, number of participants

Please see the image of this article for common sports from least risky to the highest risk of COVID-19 transmission.
