Planet Fitness gym-goer positive for COVID-19 exposed 205, West Virginia officials say


More than 200 people may have been exposed to coronavirus at a West Virginia Planet Fitness after a patron tested positive for coronavirus, health officials say.

Officials are asking anyone who visited the Morgantown location between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on June 24 to quarantine for at least 14 days and watch for symptoms, according to a June 27 news release.

They believe 205 people were at the gym during that time frame. Officials say gym-goers should stay home unless they’re receiving medical care.

“They also should do their best to stay away from others in their household,” Dr. Lee B. Smith, executive director of the Monongalia County Health Department, said. “Ways to do this would be to stay primarily in one area of the home and to wear a mask if you must be around others.”

But in 2016, that’s exactly what they did, and now their Instagram account has amassed more than 88,000 followers.

“Sweats and the City is an all-encompassing health and fitness lifestyle blog,” Borchiver told In The Know. “We’ve got health, we’ve got beauty — everything from facials to food. We really like to make it a go-to destination for New Yorkers and beyond.”

Phase 4 Is Almost Here As Pritzker Issues Warning


ACROSS ILLINOIS — Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced Thursday that all regions will move to Phase 4 on Friday, which means indoor dining will return, schools and day cares can reopen and expand their offerings, and theaters, museums and fitness centers will be back up and running. That was the good news, as Pritzker said the number of coronavirus cases have continued to drop, along with hospitalizations, ventilator usage and deaths.

But, with the step forward, came a warning. Pritzker said during a news conference Thursday that he’s not afraid to move a region back if “we see a surge.”

“Ours will not be one of the states that takes no action,” he said, adding that the road ahead will be difficult.

Until there is a treatment or vaccine, the virus remains among the population, and people need to continue to wash their hands, keep their distance and wear their face
