Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically exercise is still recommended to be carried out during the corona virus pandemic now to ensure your body remains healthy and your immune system is also well maintained. Sports that can be done during the corona virus pandemic can vary, sports that are not recommended are sports in the gym or mass gymnastics. If you want to jog, you can still do it, but make sure you jog in a quiet place (not done in a crowded place). You still have to keep a distance from others at least 1.8-2 meters. You are not allowed to make direct contact with others and keep cleaning yourself properly (including changing your clothes) as soon as you enter the house.
This is of course very dependent on government policies in your area as well. If the government in your area states you cannot leave the house at all (including to do sports outside the home), then you cannot jog outside your home. The decision taken by the local government is certainly closely related to the COVID-19 case in your area. If indeed you can not jog outside the house, you can still do sports in your home such as a treadmill, a static bicycle, or do gymnastics and yoga yourself in your home or yard.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
