Gym Use & Covid Procedures

    Hi all,

    I went back to my gym this week for the first time since December and was surprised to see the lack of Covid procedures in place. There was no mask wearing, no social distancing requirements that I could make out, only a handful of people were cleaning the machines before or after use and the gym was packed. In addition to this probably about half the people in there were in their 20s so they are unlikely to be fully vaccinated yet.

    Is this standard practice for all gyms or is my gym just taking the p*ss?

    And if it is indeed standard practice, then why is the advice for indoor areas like gyms completely at odds with all other indoor areas? Surely if the threat of spreading Delta is so great indoors, then there should be evidence of massive transmission of the variant within gyms if they are all operating like this?
