Research reveals low Covid-19 prevalence in leisure centres
Findings, published by ukactive
The findings, published by ukactive, showed there have been only 78 confirmed Covid-19 cases among more than 22 million visits since facilities were given the go-ahead to reopen.
Data was collated from more than 1,500 facilities between 25 July and 13 September – with the number of cases per 100,000 people being measured at 0.34.
The reported cases represented incidents where public health authorities have informed operators of a positive result within a certain time period of a user visiting a facility – rather than indicating transmission in the leisure centre environment specifically.
In addition to those 78 positive cases traced to customers who have used a facility, there have been only 38 cases among members of staff.
