Depends...: It depends on the level of illness and the intended exercise. If you have a fever or if you have a significant cough and/or shortness of breath, you should hold off on exercising until the infection is resolving. If you have only mild cold symptoms perhaps light exercise might be ok. To be certain of what is right in your case, see your doctor who can advise you on when you can resume exercise.
