Mask up at the gym
Masks must be worn inside gyms and other fitness facilities following Gov. Roy Cooper’s latest executive order.
Executive Order No. 180 requires all workers and guests to wear face coverings when they are inside such facilities and keeping a social distance of 6 feet is not possible, regardless of whether they are exercising. Under Phase 3 guidelines, there had previously been an exception for those engaged in strenuous exercise.
Facilities covered under the order include, but are not limited to, dance and yoga studios, martial arts facilities, gyms, fields of play, fitness centers, skating rinks, golf courses, racing tracks, paintball, bowling alleys and indoor playgrounds.
