Considering the situation that COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) has brought great changes to people’s lives, this paper studies the supply strategies of physical education courses in colleges and universities, and promotes the implementation of relevant strategies to improve the physical and mental health of house-bound college students. The research methods of network questionnaire and qualitative interview are adopted to investigate the physical activities of college students. Based on survey results, the supply strategy of physical education courses in colleges and universities is expounded. The results tell that home-based exercise dominates during the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) period with only 56.69% of college students reaching the standard of optimal immune status. The driving force of college students’ physical activities is to improve their immunity and keep healthy, while the obstacles are lack of external motivation, supervision, and internalized fitness knowledge. In such context, physical education courses should be adjusted in accordance with the above results, so as to meet the health needs of Chinese college students and adapt to the current dynamics.
