Due to the restrictions of the December 17 Stay-Home-Order, Gyms and Fitness Studios must stop indoor operations. According to the State of California, outdoor gyms meet the essential workforce definition of an outdoor recreational facility for the purpose of facilitating personal health through physically distanced outdoor exercise and may continue operations.
Examples of gyms and fitness studio-type businesses include:
- Athletic Club Fitness Centers
- Country Clubs with Indoor Fitness Facilities
- Cross Fit & High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Facilities
- Dance Studios
- Pilates Studios
- Spin / Cycling Studio
- Yoga Studios
- Other indoor aerobic activities (e.g., Kickboxing, Zumba, Step, etc)
Each business much create, adopt and implement a Site Specific Protection Plan (SPP) prior to reopening. The SPP template combines state-level guidance published in the California State Resilience Roadmap and local Marin County public health policies.
Gyms and Fitness Studio-related businesses / operations should follow the guidelines below to create a safer environment for workers and patrons.
