Five months after gyms and fitness facilities had to close due to COVID-19, they will soon be allowed to reopen since New York continues to enjoy a relatively low infection rate.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said Monday that gyms can reopen their doors as early as August 24 with 33 percent capacity. All gym-goers and staff must wear a mask at all times. A sign-in form must be used so the gyms know exactly who has been there for contact tracing purposes.

Also, gyms must have proper ventilation systems, using the MERV-13 filter, as well as the proper filtration systems.
