Limited attendance on outdoor fitness classes announced

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — New COVID-19 rules for outdoor fitness classes say that if all of the individuals in the class are from different households, the class size is limited to eight. Classes can increase to 12 if the additional four are household members of the original eight. Six feet of distancing must be provided between attendees. The new guidance takes effect immediately. It was an update to rules issued last week that require 300 square feet of distance _ 17 feet by 17 feet _ between patrons at indoor fitness centers in counties in Phase 2 or 3 of the state’s COVID-19 economic reopening plan. For facilities larger than 12,000 square feet, there is a cap of 25% occupancy. Those rules took effect Monday.
