GoodLife Fitness closes all locations Canada-wide in response to novel coronavirus spread

Well-known gym chain GoodLife Fitness is closing all its locations across Canada effective immediately in an effort to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

“As the virus continues to spread in communities across Canada we have made the difficult but important decision to close all GoodLife Fitness Clubs across Canada, effective immediately,” said a statement posted online Sunday night.

The company says it will continue to pay its workers for the next two weeks to “help lessen the financial burden of this tremendous change.”

As of Tuesday March 17, member payments will be suspended. Memberships that have been paid in full will be frozen, with expiry dates pushed back.

It is unclear when the company plans on reopening.
