GoodLife Fitness says a person who tested positive for the novel coronavirus had spent time at the company’s Burnaby Northgate Club.
The person was at the gym between the days of June 22 and July 3. The member attended the gym sometime between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on those days.
Fraser Health says the affected person has not been in the club since July 3.
The company says it has implemented measures to decrease the risk of transmission in its facilities.
The Burnaby Northgate location remains open and the company says it will continue to follow directions from Fraser Health.
Gyms were not closed province-wide by provincial health order amid the COVID-19 crisis, but several health authorities issued their own closure orders. All B.C. gyms were cleared to reopen, with precautions, in mid-May.
WorkSafeBC has created COVID-19 protocols for fitness centres, covering issues from physical distancing to sanitization to keeping showers and locker rooms safe.
