    Default Global Data Show COVID-19 Transmission in Gyms is Rare

    Global Data Show COVID-19 Transmission in Gyms is Rare

    Data from three countries show that gyms are successfully implementing risk mitigation measures and not spreading COVID-19.

    U.S. - Data collected by IHRSA and MXM

    The U.S. collected the most extensive sampling, with 2,873 fitness facilities taking part in IHRSA and MXM’s “visit-to-virus” ratio tracker. Of the 49.4 million member check-ins documented in the study, health clubs reported 1,155 cases, translating to a 0.0023% infection rate. Once again, none of the cases led to community transmission.

    However, contact tracing data from several states and existing research support the findings here that clubs do not primarily drive COVID-19 transmission.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently published a study examining what places were most likely visited by those testing for COVID-19—positive or not. Researchers found no statistically significant association between participants having a positive COVID-19 test result and visiting the gym.

    got to love the wisdom of people in government . no accountability, nothing but a bunch of dumb asses. if you want to know how to do everything wrong look at New York and its incompetent government.

    “CDC Begins Recommending Wearing Two Masks”

    “We already know based on objective, impartial, empirical data, that there is effectively no difference in covid case counts/hospitalizations/deaths in states that mandate masks and business restrictions (such as North Dakota) vs states which do not (such as its southern neighbor).


    So, perhaps while looking at this graphic, the CDC had a brilliant idea: ok, one mask does not work, but what about... two masks!

    That's right: starting Wednesday, the CDC (aka the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) began recommending that Americans wear two masks, or specifically a cloth mask over a medical mask to slow the spread of Covid-19.

    The guidance followed the release of an agency study (because "scientists") that found double masking can boost protection from aerosolized particles.

    Whereas government officials previously said the CDC was waiting to gather evidence on double masking, they now appear to have a greenlight to mandate double-masking. The new study, part of the agency’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, also examined the efficacy of modifications made to improve the fit of a medical mask. Either double masking or tightening a mask’s fit reduced exposure to aerosols that could be infectious by about 95%, the research concluded.

    “These experiments highlight the importance of good fit to maximize mask performance,” the authors wrote.

    “There are multiple simple ways to achieve better fit of masks to more effectively slow the spread of Covid-19.”

    The findings came from experiments done by the agency last month, which tested how double masking and changes to improve mask fit worked amid coughing, which the researchers simulated. Knotting the loops of a surgical mask and tucking in extra fabric near the face was found to reduce exposure, as was wearing a cloth mask over a surgical mask.

    As a result, the CDC's new guidance now recommends that Americans should ensure that masks fit tightly on their face and have layers, both of which improve protection. There are several routes to do that, including wearing a disposable mask beneath a cloth mask or choosing a mask with multiple layers of fabric, according to the recommendation.

    That said, double-masking with two disposable masks, or with a KN95, isn’t recommended.

    “The bottom line is this: Masks work and they work best when they have a good fit and are worn correctly,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said at a White House briefing on Wednesday.

    And while the CDC may argue that "the bottom line" is whatever it wants it to be, at least until it changes its mind in a month to suit some political interest du jour, the reality is that wearing just one mask has shown no tangible improvement on infection numbers.

    In fact, none other than Dr Anthony Fauci said one week ago that "there's no data that indicates that [double masking] is going to make a difference."

    But that was science in January. We now have February science. As a result, it's time to reset the count and start with two.... then three masks.... then four.... until eventually we all will look like this...


    ... at least for a few minutes before everyone dies from asphyxiation”

    COuple of things. Number 1, masks work. No ifs, and or butts about it. Number 2, yes gyms are probably relatively safe for a couple reasons. 1st - masks. 2nd - distancing. 3rd - This is my belief and it is that people that get it who go to gyms keep their fucking mouths shut and don't admit to it once they've gotten sick. For fear of gyms closing again or if they are attending a gym that isn't enforcing protocols maybe worse.

    “Dentists declare 'mask mouth' a new phenomenon as they see an explosion in patients suffering from tooth decay and gum disease after wearing face coverings”

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.dai...m-disease.html

    another reason why I choose not to wear a mask. mask wearing is nothing but virtue signaling doing exactly what you’re told by your lying corrupt government because you can’t think for yourself, unless maybe you have a N 95 perfectly custom fitted to your face and dispose of them after every use. that can be very costly for people on a tight budget.

    A mask is like using a wire fence in your window instead a screen to keep out mosquitoes.

    True virtue signaling at its best. They are doing exactly what the Cabal wants, further depressing our immune systems and slowly breaking our will.

    On Tuesday, we noted how California and Florida have strikingly similar COVID numbers despite polar opposite approaches to dealing with the virus; Florida has remained a largely open state without mask mandates or lockdowns, while California has imposed strict lockdowns that have devastated small businesses and contributed to a national mental health crisis.


    California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, has put some of the strictest measures in place to combat the coronavirus pandemic - while Florida's Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis has done nearly the opposite. -Daily Mail

    New cases, deaths, and hospitalizations between the two states follow virtually the same patterns, with Florida's data looking even better than California.



    In an appearance on MSNBC, White House COVID adviser Andy Slavitt said that the virus was unpredictable and that the differences between the two states are "a little bit beyond our explanation."

    Biden's adviser struggled to spell out specific reasons that Florida's lax approach wasn't just as effective, saying: 'What we do know is that the more careful people are, the more they mask and social distance, and the quicker we vaccinate, the quicker it goes away and the less it spreads,' Slavitt said.

    'This is a virus that continues to surprise us. It's very hard to predict. And all around the country, we've got to continue to do a better job, and I think we are, but we're done yet,' he said. -Daily Mail

    Lockdowns and mask mandates do not work.

    No way... you can wear the ones I am not.

    Not a single person in our gym wears a mask.

    Imagine if someone told you to wear two condoms, wouldn't you be concerned they didn't work if one wasn't enough. Stay the fuck home if you're so afraid.

    if 2 is better why not wear 3 and seal around it with duct tape for a secure fit? you must not care about the people around you.
