Falls Church, Virginia -- Thursday, July 9, 2020
Chris Yurek, the boys gymnastics program manager at Dynamic Gymnastics, wears a mask while giving instructions to a participant. The business, which started to reopen in mid-June, is using a color-coded system to help the young athletes stay in designated areas: an orange bracelet is linked with an orange dot on the carpet, spaced at least six feet apart from others.
From the story:
“Middle splits with masks has become the new normal at Dynamic Gymnastics, a gym outside Arlington, Va., that remained afloat through the coronavirus pandemic because of a $179,905 loan secured through the Paycheck Protection Program, the federal government’s attempt to keep businesses from shuttering during the outbreak.”
