- Increased, thorough cleaning will be conducted using a disinfectant on the EPA list effective against COVID-19, including 20-minute walkarounds by team members to continually clean and sanitize high-touch areas

- Increased sanitization stations will be available throughout the gym floor and members will continue to be asked to wipe down equipment before and after use

- Touchless check-in is available via the free Planet Fitness app

- Some pieces of cardio equipment will be temporarily marked out of use to enable Social Fitnessing™ and create additional distance between members
