A gym chain with Houston locations plans to offer its members a choice of exercising with or without a mask. 24 Hour Fitness won’t require masks in the gym’s main space after the state’s mask mandate and occupancy limits are lifted on Wednesday. But the gym will set off an area for customers who prefer to wear masks.
The option will be available at all of 24 Hour Fitness’ 18 Houston-area locations, and 38 statewide. As of Wednesday, they’ll operate at 100-percent occupancy, and will maintain their pandemic-related cleaning protocols.
