Exercising and physical activity are important for physical and mental health and should be continued for healthy living, especially during the coronavirus crisis. However, it is necessary to take precautions to reduce exposure to and transmission of COVID-19.

There are ways to reduce your risk at gyms, fitness centers, and studios. Please consider:

  • Proximity: maintain at least 6 feet of separation (about 2 arm lengths) and avoid close contact with other people.
  • Mask use: select a facility that has requires all staff and attendees to wear a mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times.
  • Exertion level: limit high-intensity activities to the outdoors.
  • Ventilation: look for gyms, fitness centers, or studios that have high ceilings and use ventilation practices such as opening doors and windows and use portable air cleaners that have HEPA filters.
  • Frequently touched surfaces: wipe down frequently touched surfaces, such as machines and equipment, with disinfecting wipes before and after use.
  • Clean hands: wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol before and after using machines.
  • Number of people: go during off-peak times to avoid crowding.
  • Duration: if choosing to stay indoors, keep your workouts as brief as possible to avoid prolonged exposure.


Do not visit a gym, fitness center, or studio if you have tested positive for COVID-19, you have been recently tested for COVID-19 and are waiting on test results, are showing symptoms of COVID-19, or any of the people in your household or close contacts have tested positive for COVID-19 or are showing symptoms of COVID-19.
