Just another thought . . . has anyone tried exercising w/one of those plastic face shields on?
I think the shields are more for the purpose of protecting the wearer (mainly medical staff) from breathing in infectious droplets (or having them reach your face) than the masks are but, if you can't/don't want to wear a mask because it interferes w/your breathing while running/jogging or whatever, if you wear a shield, it will at least give the "message" that you "care" about whether you may spread the disease (whether you actually are doing that or not isn't the issue) and it "may" actually prevent infectious droplets spread by others hitting your face and thereby infect you.
While you shouldn't have any problem breathing while wearing a shield, I'm guessing that it would be a hassle to keep the shield in place while running/jogging (but not walking) because of the head movement that would jostle the shield and because of sweat which would also affect the fit/feel of the shield and the shield would probably fog up w/the heat/sweat given off while exercising.
So, there is no perfect "solution" to this problem.

I ran 6 miles today and thought about this post.
I couldn’t find any correlation between my breaths and my steps, although I expected to!
Footfalls never seemed to have any rhythm with the breathing.
I see I’m lots of help.
