The COVID-19 outbreak has done immense harm, not just to affected individuals, but also to the many businesses that have been forced to shutter during mandated stay-at-home orders. Industries that depend on in-person interactions have been among those hardest hit: bars, restaurants, theaters, retailers and, yes, gyms and fitness centers. 

When this crisis finally ends, members of fitness facilities will want to be certain that their clubs are not only free of the coronavirus, but of all manner of pathogens. Ensuring that your facility is ready to meet that challenge will help reassure members — and staff — that their environment is safe, providing peace of mind and clearing a path toward normalcy.
