To those complaining about gyms being closed

  • Personal risk tolerance for everyone you interact with, too.

You're making the choice to put yourself out there and interact with people. That means you'll inevitably be interacting with people with a higher risk profile who don't have a choice but to interact with you. Even if you don't get super sick you'll be contagious. If a nonessential business does the responsible thing and shuts down then the people there can at least collect unemployment. If they can't do that, then they have to go to work whether they like it or not because you didn't feel like switching to kettlebells for a few months. If you're ok with that, then you're ok with that, but don't pretend it isn't a thing. Just come out and say that you care more about your workout than other people's lives.
