A recent poll gym owner Rickard Long put to affiliate owners found that just 1.1 percent of the 266 gyms that participated have had COVID-19 transmission at their gym. 

The details: 188 respondents said they have had a member test positive for COVID-19, but it was not due to transmission at their facility. 

  • Meanwhile, 41 respondents said they had no known positive cases at their gym, and just three said there had been an “outbreak” at their gym, explained Long, the owner of Escapist CrossFit in Berlin, Germany.
