EXCLUSIVE There’s a big debate about gyms shutting down over the virus. Now Equinox gym in the Flatiron District is reporting a male member has been tested positive for corona virus. Thanks to a Tweet we know about it because an email to members was posted. But there’s no word on the gym shutting down. Are they crazy? A young woman who answered the phone tonight at the gym said that as soon they knew, the gym had a “deep clean.” So it’s up to Equinox members if they go back for more. The person I spoke to confirmed that the member had the virus, and that the gym was not shutting down. This is outrageous. Probably all gyms must shut down for two weeks.
