Preparing your Fitness Studio for the Coronavirus.
How to keep you and your clients safe.
Today Boris Johnson is holding an emergency Cobra meeting to decide whether to bring in measures to delay the spread of the coronavirus, Covid-19.
As it stands, there have been a total of 280 confirmed cases in the UK, with more being reported daily. Today’s meeting will look at measures to slow the spread of the virus and could include a ban on large gatherings and sporting events. It may also include encouraging people to work from home to avoid using crowded public transport.
As a fitness entrepreneur, you’re bringing people together to work in close proximity, and whilst your members may be extremely fit and healthy, it’s important that you take steps to minimise any potential spread.
The NHS has created a list on how to avoid catching or spreading the coronavirus, these can be adapted to help your clients in your own facility.
To minimise the spread of the coronavirus make sure that you communicate with your clients, you can do this quickly and easily with your Custom Branded App through Push Notifications to all your members.
