The main question in the field of exercise and rehabilitation medicine is whether physical activity and therapeutic exercise are suitable activities for COVID-19 patients who are recovering at home. There have been few public health guidelines provided about what people can do in relationship with exercise and respiratory care. For this reason, it is necessary that physical therapists give some recommendations concerning safe respiratory and physical exercises that could be executed by people with confirmed, suspected, or probable COVID-19 who stay at home.
