Planet Fitness changes mask policy
Planet Fitness has changed its policy on face masks and will no longer require masks while members are actively working out.
The initial policy was released on July 27 and said face masks would need to be worn at all times in the facilities.
The policy was changed on July 29 to requiring masks only when not actively working out.
According to the company's website:
Your health and safety is our #1 priority, and we're committed to keeping our clubs clean and safe. For the enhanced safety of our members, guests and team members, masks are now required except while actively working out, and in accordance with local restrictions, in all Planet Fitness locations worldwide, effective August 1, 2020. This means that a mask must be worn at all times, and in accordance with local restrictions, in the club (except while actively working out) including when entering and exiting the facility, in between machines and exercises on the gym floor, cleaning, and while in the locker room and not behind a private enclosure such as a shower or tanning room. While you are actively working out, you do not need to have a mask on.
