The revolt of the locals without dehors
From changing rooms to showers, the planned measures
Gym operators are required to organize spaces of the premises so that no gatherings are created (for example by providing alternate workstations or by separating the workstations with special barriers). Athletes must respect the interpersonal distancing of two meters (and one meter while not exercising) and will have to wear masks in the common areas. For the moment, it is expected that showers will be able to be used after training, but in the changing rooms it will still be mandatory to maintain a distance of two meters from each other. Finally, the sanitization of tools and machinery after use by athletes is also mandatory. The owners are required to keep open, where possible, windows and doors in order to facilitate the exchange of air.
Water bottles, towels, backpacks
Athletes are required not to share their personal items with other athletes: therefore water bottles, glasses, bottles, towels, bathrobes. The clothes must be stored in their own bags, even if they are deposited in the lockers of the gyms. In any case, owners are advised not to allow mixed use of the lockers and to make bags available to athletes to store their personal effects.
