Gyms and coronavirus: What are the facts?
Gyms across the UK are opening their doors and welcoming back their customers. Many have missed the community spirit and health benefits that come with a membership and this time around – it is imperative that we have the protective measures in place to avoid a third lockdown and potentially losing some of our much-loved gyms across the country.
Gym environments have the potential to make an excellent breeding ground for bacteria and viruses to spread. Exercising vigorously means that you breathe more rapidly and create more water droplets. There are also lots of touch points, like handles and equipment that help transfer the virus between multiple people. Professor Jonathan Ball, virologist at the University of Nottingham says:
"A lot of that risk can be dramatically lowered through things like effective air-conditioning, regular cleaning, social distancing and hand sanitising."
