COVID-19 Response for our Gym in Alexandria VA

Alexandria VA – On Monday, October 19, Sand and Steel became one of the first gyms in Virginia to voluntarily ask all of their members to wear masks while they are in the gym.  Yes, we have the brand new BAF Clean Air System which ionizes the air and kills the COVID-19 virus. And yes, we have generous social distancing spacing 10 feet, foggers, air quality sensors, floor sprayers, and UV Phone Cleaners to keep the gym clean.

We know the Governor Northam’s Executive Order 67 doesn’t require members in gyms to wear a mask when they are exercising. But, Executive Order 67 sets the MINIMUM safety standard for gyms. Sand & Steel is not, nor will it ever will be, a small business that settles for minimum standards when it comes to the health and safety of our members. Our staff deserves better than minimum levels of protection — and you do too.

When you wear a mask you not only protect yourself, you protect your coach, and you protect the other members working with you in the gym. Wearing a face masks helps reduce the risk asymptomatic person transmitting the virus to another person. So wearing a face mask not only protects you … it protects others from you. If everyone follows this policy — the risk of someone getting COVID-19 from the gym is substantially reduced. 

COVID-19 Response

Armed with Bi-Polar Ionization, Negative Pressure HEPA Filtration, Air Quality Sensors, and UV-Disinfection technology, Sand & Steel brings a veritable armada of high tech, hospital-grade equipment to keep you safe from Sars-CoV-2 Infection.
