    Now, despite appearing to have complied with public health regulations, at least 61 people linked to the studio have tested positive for the coronavirus.

    “They had done all sorts of things to remove the potential for spread,” Richardson told reporters. “Unfortunately, gyms are a higher-risk place because of the fact that generally people are taking off their masks, they’re breathing at a higher rate.”

    Spin studios tend to be tightly confined rooms, unlike the large open areas with weights and cardio machines in the typical gym.

    • Who on earth thought it was a good idea to allow heavy-duty exercising in an enclosed space without masks? Unbelievable.

          I will most certainly not, though I am anxious to get back into A gym. That'll have to wait.

              I was told Canadians are much smarter than Floridians, though.

                I've found stupidity to be a universal across the globe.
                Wisdom and kindness also.

                    I've been going for a month now. My achilles heel stopped me from walking. I go at down times. Opening time on weekends and lunch other times. It's a big box (L.A. Fitness) Gym, Do cardio up stairs with a max of 8 others spread out over 1500 square feet, all facing away from me. Without a mask since it affects my breathing. Downstairs I wear a mask ,I am in the 99%ile, never more than 40 people spread out over 3,000 square feet. So far so good. They've cancelled spin classes and yoga and Basketball. I am leery of the A/C, but the ceiling is up 2 stories.

                      A recreational ice hockey game in Florida turned into a "superspreader" event when 14 out of 22 players developed COVID-19 after the game, including players on both teams, according to a new report.

                        He might be the last person in New Jersey to discover this. Considering some of the morons I've seen from NJ on TV (Jersey Shore), that's saying a lot.

                          actually, the young should wear a mask for the sake of the old. They are at near zero risk from cv19.

                            Sort of my plan also - I get up very early (usually 3-4 AM) so plan to go to the gym as soon as I get up when we get back to Hilton Head. I'm sure it will be pretty empty at that time and I will wear a mask.

                              My favorite Jersey person moment ever came when my wife and I were driving north to our New Hampshire home from North Carolina. We stopped at a rest area on the Jersey Pike and I got in line at a food counter while she went to the rest room. In front of me were 3 obvious Jersey Girls talking. One of them said to the others, "Hey, remember when Joey shot and killed that guy? Can you believe they arrested him for that?"

                                Headline - Lane County added to state COVID-19 County Watch List

                                Lede
                                Gov. Kate Brown added Lane County to the state's County Watch List on Friday, noting the increasing spread of COVID-19 is connected in part to student activities and to small get-togethers.
