Keywords:protocols, health, pandemics, exercise
The objective of the study was to create an assistance protocol for the public, specific for Physical Education (PE) professionals, in the context of COVID-19. The present study had a qualitative approach, delineated by documental and bibliographic analysis of the documents available on the websites of the Health Professional Councils. Thus, a protocol was elaborated consisting of two types of professional activity, of a general domain, which reinforces actions already presented by other studies, and of a specific domain, which presents new guidelines for PE professionals. Furthermore, this protocol classified the work of these professionals into three situations, namely: constant physical contact, transitory physical contact, and improbable physical contact. Up to the present moment, specifications of Personal Protective Equipment for PE professionals focused on clothing, client contact and exercise intensity have not been verified, except for the general work environment. Therefore, it is expected that the current study contributes to the health and safety of PE professionals in this pandemic context.
