"Gyms are a known high risk setting. They cause outbreaks"
Brett Sutton, Chief Medical Officer 6/8/2020.
FITNESS CENTRES ARE COVID-19 SAFE
"Since reopening in mid-June NSW data showed more than 7 million visits over 500 facilities with no confirmed community transmissions (“outbreaks”) to date, not one."
FITNESS CENTRES ARE AN ESSENTIAL SERVICE
1 in 6 Victorians regularly visit a fitness centre. We must get the community active and back into their healthy routines.
