Infographic. Graduated return to play guidance following COVID-19 infection

With risk of cardiological, renal, respiratory and haematological complications, it is best practice to follow steady resumption of training, paying attention to physical and psychological factors after COVID-19 infection. This guidance takes into account public health guidelines in the UK (although we hope its content is relevant more widely) and available expert opinion at time of publication and is for use by healthcare practitioners. It is applicable to performance athletes who have had mild to moderate illness. Those requiring hospital admission merit further assessment.
