NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Gyms in most Tennessee counties will reopen Friday with some new guidelines to follow. Of course, this doesn't include Davidson County just yet.
Many people are excited to be able to head back to the gym, but it will look a little different through those doors now.
Gov. Bill Lee has asked all business owners to take the Tennessee Pledge. This means they have agreed to follow new guidelines to keep customers and workers safe.
All gyms have to remain at 50% capacity, follow social distancing guidelines and everyone is encouraged to wear Personal Protective Equipment.
Right now, all common areas like locker rooms, showers and juice bars that are inside the gym will stay closed. Also, all equipment and high-touch surfaces must be disinfected continuously.
Keep in mind that just because gyms are allowed to reopen doesn’t mean every owner will open today. It’s best to call ahead to make sure.
