Among those infected are gym customers as well as employees.
The gym has closed its doors temporarily and public health has imposed a 14-day isolation period on people who attended the gym between October 21 and November 7 from the day of their last visit to the gym.
In an Instagram post, the gym announced it would remain closed for “at least another week.”
Largely spared at the time of the first wave, British Columbia has shown a meteoric increase in its cases since mid-October.
As of this date last month, British Columbia had registered 101 new cases of COVID-19. On Friday, she identified 617, a new record for the province.
