“The club is currently undergoing a process of deep cleaning in addition to the increased daily cleaning that has been taking place since the club reopened in June.
“Fitness First St Leonards has followed all the NSW Health recommendations and guidelines in relation to this matter, including providing them with the details of all members, visitors and staff who are required to self-isolate as a result of potentially being in contact with the member.”
