Saskatoon Motion Fitness warns of COVID-19 case
SASKATOON -- Anyone who's been at the Motion Fitness in Brighton over the last week is being advised to watch for symptoms of COVID-19.
Motion Fitness has sent emails to some of its members who checked into the location recently alerting them to a case of the illness.
The gym has identified four days starting last week when a person who tested positive was at the gym.
- July 9 - 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- July 10 - 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- July 13 - 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- July 14 - 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The gym has been sanitized since the case was reported, Motion Fitness says. The case was one of the gym's members.
"Because each of our members is required to scan in every time they visit our facilities we are able to provide a detailed list of every member who may have been a potential contact and we have reached out to them directly via email and SHA letter has been hung in the gym in multiple locations," said Kathrina Marshall with Motion Fitness in an email.
"Motion Fitness is following all the public health measures policies with physical distancing, sanitizing and health screening."
Shelby Reid, a member of Motion Fitness who visits the Brighton location often, said she would have preferred that the gym notified all members about the case.
“I think they should have at least sent out an email to everyone because you never know, what if someone entered and they didn’t sign in."
Reid Copper is also a member at Motion Fitness Brighton and said he is not concerned.
“My stance is I am not too worried because everyone there is very clean and they wipe down all of the equipment after it is used."
The Saskatchewan Health Authority did not issue a public service announcement, saying those are only issued in certain cases in the interest of public safety and when potential contacts cannot be identified and contacted within 48 hours.
