Do I have to wear a face mask while exercising?

You do not need to wear a face mask when exercising outdoors or indoors.  It is recommended that you wear a face mask when you are indoors, and you cannot keep 1.5 metres distance from others.    

You still need to carry a face mask with you at all times.

You can find more information on the face masks page. 

Will I be fined for not carrying a face mask with me when I exercise? 

Yes, unless you have a lawful reason not to wear a face mask. You must still carry a face mask with you when you leave home, unless you have a lawful reason not to wear a face mask. This is in case you require your face mask, for example, if you are in a public indoor setting or aren’t able to keep 1.5 metres distance from other people while outdoors.
