A doctor offered this advice to working out safely in a pandemic:

  • Bring two towels: One to wipe the equipment and one for your face.
  • Carry disinfecting wipes, too. If you have some to spare.
  • Exercise facing the wall or mirror.
  • No heavy breathing around another person.
  • Shorten your workout time, not a minute longer than necessary.
  • Shower at home. Avoid the locker room altogether.
  • Gym attire and towels go straight into the laundry.
