INTRODUCTION: As this is a new disease, the short- and long-term consequences for patients with COVID-19 are still unclear. The use of sedatives, as well as prolonged rest, can lead to musculoskeletal damage, including decreased muscle strength and physical function. Thus, rehabilitation after this disease is a key component in continuing patient care. OBJECTIVE: To verify the effects of face-to-face cardiac rehabilitation and telerehabilitation on tolerance to the maximum and submaximal exercise, lung function, fatigue intensity and quality of life of COVID-19 survivors. METHODS: This is a longitudinal, intervention study. Primary outcomes will be maximum and submaximal functional capacity, intensity and impact of fatigue, while secondary outcomes will be lung function and quality of life. EXPECTED RESULTS: This work will bring important information to the scientific community and health professionals, about the best forms of intervention and its repercussions on the surviving individuals of COVID-19.
