Disclosure: A fully vaccinated Box member has tested Covid positive. She was at Box class July 14th, felt ill a few days later, tested positive, and has been in quarantine since. We continue to disinfect daily: hand rails, rope handles, door knobs, toilet handles, sink handles, dumbbells and now have washed the bags. We count on you to wipe down the equipment you personally use. New variants in the US may affect people even if vaccinated, so for your [and my] peace of mind, we continue to be diligent with cleaning and continue with controlled class sign-up with no cross over mornings/nights, so that group contact is limited to a small and isolated number of members. When we work out with the same 10-15 people daily we can easily know who we have come in contact with and keep the shoppe safe.

Posted Q1: The Shape Up Shoppe Fitness Club Inc. Safety Requirements:
2697 S. KK Ave. Milwaukee WI 53207 www.shapeupshoppe.com We are a private club for members only & doors lock when class begins. Please be on time as it is difficult to hear the phone.
Do not come to the Shoppe if you feel ill, have a fever, or are coughing. This rule has ALWAYS been in place. We will expand this to include:…and, if you have been in contact with anyone that is experiencing these issues. We will be closing between classes and disinfecting the entire Shoppe including rest-rooms, hand rails, doors, and more. We will ask you to sign the Screening Form upon entering, rather than the sign-in attendance sheet. We do trust you, and we want you to feel safe. Enter with a mask and keep it on until getting to a spot in class. Keep moving while entering and distance by 6-feet while signing in using a clean pen or bring your own. Keep your gym bag with you and take it room to room with you when switching workout rooms.
Department of Public Health writes:
It more difficult for the wearer to breathe due to carbon dioxide buildup, which reduces the intake of oxygen, increased breathing rates, heart rate, respiratory rates, work of breathing, and CO2 buildup potentially posing risk to sensitive populations. Wearing a mask delivers less oxygen into the body than when the person is not wearing a mask. It can lead to oxygen shortage, suffocation, respiration trouble, and heart attacks. Oxygen loss is equivalent to 1–2 % of the total body oxygen consumption at rest, but increases during activity to 8–10 %.
In addition, Scarves, bandannas, tissues, and anything not marked N95 or better (N100, P99, P100, etc.) are not helpful. "Surgical masks that trap small particles are designed to filter air coming out of the wearer's mouth and do not provide a good seal to prevent inhalation of small particles People with breathing problems (ironically) are discouraged from wearing a mask without getting a doctor's recommendation. Wearing a mask may actually be harmful to some people with heart or lung disease because it can make the lungs work harder to breathe. The state also recommends using a new mask each day, "if you can”.
