The answer to this question is more about policy and politeness than it is about the viral spread. Generally speaking, outdoor exercise – with or without a mask – seems to be safe, according to most experts.
Benjamin Cowling, a professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of Hong Kong, says, “I think relatively, little Covid-19 transmission would occur outdoors, except perhaps in large crowds.” According to him, transmission risks should be minimal for both the runner and those he may pass by.
Despite what Cowling suggests, most of us should cover our faces while we exercise outside. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that people now wear a mask when they leave home. This could serve as a reassurance to people with whom you share sidewalks with while running. We should not also forget to maintain social distancing at all times. And as much as possible, let’s lessen our time outside.
