The period of the pandemic and government restrictions introduced many changes in health-promoting behaviors among college students. It is known that insufficient levels of physical activity are associated with a number of chronic diseases and mental health disorders. The aim of this study was to provide an overview of the current state of art regarding the level of physical activity during the pandemic among students in Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Analysis of included studies revealed a decrease in the level of physical activity. Thus, the implementation of education programs to increase physical activity levels to counteract the effects of the pandemic remains crucial.
