Every Person In This Room Got Covid

Heavy breathing inside with unmasked strangers is not the best idea.

SELF – This week, new research provides a stark reminder that COVID-19 and the gym don’t mix particularly well.

The instructor was facing the class, “shouting instructions and encouragement,” the report says, and, presumably, spreading infectious respiratory droplets containing the virus.

Over the next week, all 10 people who attended the class tested positive for COVID-19.

Of those infected participants, one was also a fitness instructor, who would later be admitted to the ICU for a severe case of COVID-19.

But before his symptoms came on, he taught multiple classes, unmasked, at a different facility—including a personal training session and three small kickboxing classes just 12 hours before his symptoms appeared.

Of the 11 people who were exposed that day (five of whom were also exposed to the instructor two days earlier), 10 would test positive for COVID-19 over the next few days …  CLICK SOURCE BELOW TO READ MORE.
