AbstractCoronavirus disease 19 (COVID19) have compelled implementing confinement measure across the globe. These measures can potentially lead to many changes in lifestyle. However, no studies examined the effect of COVID19-induced confinement on physical (PA) and sedentary (SA) activity. Therefore, the current study surveyed changes in PA and SA during April and May of 2020. The participant of the study were 1844. Among the participants who were regularly involved in PA, the majority (41.8-42.2%) of the participants reported a “decrease” (p<0.05) in walking, jogging, and sports while the majority (46.3-53.1%) reported a “no change” (p<0.05) in swimming, cycling, and weightlifting. With regard the SA, most of the participants reported an “increase” in watching TV (72.3%), using electronics (82.7%), and logging to social media (81.9%). Additionally, gender, job type, obesity, gender and being worried to conduct the disease are associated (p<0.05) with changes in PA while age, gender, obesity, job type and income are related (p<0.05) to changes in SA. In conclusion, the results might enhance our knowledge about the impact of COVID19 on lifestyle, particularly PA and SA. Subsequently, can also be used to establish strategies to enhance engagement in activities during the current and future pandemics.
