New York City Gyms To Reopen On Wednesday [VIDEO]

The New York Daily News reports:

The city is giving a tech-y touch to its efforts to keep gyms safe as they begin to reopen this Wednesday. The Health Department will conduct “virtual inspections” of gyms to ensure they are following new rules to keep customers and staff safe.

A virtual inspection will consist of a video call between a gym operator and a Health Department worker in which the operator shows their posted safety plan, the site’s supply of face coverings, social distancing markers, cleaning log, supply of soap and paper towels, designated area for pick-ups and deliveries and health screening records.

State rules require gyms to do daily COVID-19 screenings of customers and staff. While they won’t have to take actual coronavirus tests, they’ll fill out questionnaires about their symptoms, previous testing and exposure to positive cases.
