GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — The rapidly rising positive cases of COVID has forced Mesa County to enter a Level One “Safer at Home” order. This order as well as the Variance Protection Program has been in affect since Monday, and the program encourages businesses to implement stronger safety measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Specifically, gyms have to reduce capacity to 25% or 75 people per room. However, Crossroads Fitness isn’t worried about the change because it has been cautious about capacity since the start of the pandemic and has never allowed the maximum number of people to enter before.
The gym also has other safety measures in place to slow the spread. For instance, every member must get their temperature checked before they workout. In addition, the cardio machines are socially distanced, and masks are required while members walk around the fitness center, but the masks do not have to be worn when exercising. Still, for fitness fanatics that prefer to wear a mask, Crossroads offers “mask required” group classes.
