So Lady O and I ventured into the gym today. We hadn't been to a real gym since just before the first SIYFH order. And really didn't think we'd be going anytime soon, given that gyms are often listed up there right after bars and churches as covid petri dishes. But Planet Fitness kept sending emails about what they're doing to "keep members safe" and we decided we'd at least go by and look and talk to them. So they are working at it hard, emphasizing continuous cleaning and maintaining separation of members. And there weren't many people there, so we're going to keep going until/unless the crowd gets bigger and you could no longer avoid people. Today, I barely got within 20 feet of anybody, much less 6, and kept on my 95 mask. Six months will make a dent in your conditioning, though.

Do they sanitize equipment after every use?

The attendants seem to be doing a lot of cleaning, but there is disinfectant and paper towels looks like within 20 feet or so of wherever you are in the place. We wipe down before and after. Really, though, surface infection off of most of the equipment is pretty low risk compared to if you had some heavy breathing brute without a mask crowded up to you. That's largely what they're avoiding, and doing it well - so far. Actually, we haven't ever had much trouble with crowding at Planet Fitness anywhere we've been. We joined PF, not so much because they're the best gym around - they definitely aren't- but because they're literally everywhere and cheap. They'll get a little crowded with what we refer to the "January People" - those who show up for a couple or three weeks for their New Years resolution and never seen again. And we usually go late mornings - after the early group is off to work and before the lunch bunch comes in. So we'll take it one day at a time and if it's ever too crowded when we want to go, we'll just pick another time. And if they get sloppy about clean/mask/distance standards, we'll drop back out.

Guy rides the "perfect wave" yesterday at Maverick's beach, around Half Moon Bay. Ulysses should have been down there watching the waves and surfers.
