The rule makes no sense, but I think they should do what they feel is best. And if membership rates fall into the toilet, they can enjoy that too. I assume Toronto has lots of options for people who want to work out.

Good. Just like the Shakers, people like that* should die off and be lost in the annals of history except as the occasional worst example.

But...how can you prove a negative? What's to stop a vaccinated person from saying "Nope, never had it."? There's no card that shows you don't have it, you just...this is just...damn people are dumb.

Shakers at least had some interesting furniture styles.  These people won't leave much more than a ripple in history.

A few weeks from now, we'll be reading the headline, "Toronto" gym closes shop. The e invisible hand giveth and it taketh away.

Kinda self selecting. How many rational/vaccinated people will be OK with going someplace that's mostly anti-vaxxers?

Well, you can log in to the government portal and get a proof of vaccination... so I assume that any plague rats that want to join the gym can log in and show that they don't have a record of vaccination?

Remember, this is Canada where healthcare is under provincial mandate. The government has our records of vaccination. I'm not in Ontario, but where I am you get a QR code associated with your name and vaccination record (available 2 weeks after your second vaccination) - any business that wants/has to to impose vaccination mandates can scan it with an app (that verifies that it is going to the correct website) and gives either a green checkmark or red X and the name associated with the QR (to prevent someone sharing their QR with an unvaccinated person).
 
2021-07-20 10:16:52 PM  
Famous last words.

Actually the famous last words will be 'I wish I had gotten the vaccine.'

Hopefully they'd be smart enough to stay the fark away from that gym.  Why would anyone with an IQ above room temperature want to go near that place?

Exactly! QR codes are bulletproof. No one can create one except the proper authorities.

Turns out it's not really about personal choice for them, is it. It's about doing the opposite of whatever the smart people are strongly advising.
 
2021-07-20 10:29:38 PM  
Does the gym take out life insurance policies on all the members or something?
 
2021-07-20 10:32:37 PM  
The gym probably won't be able to expand to new locations.

The biggest vaccination campaign in history is underway. More than 3.67 billion doses have been administered across 179 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg. The latest rate was roughly 32.8 million doses a day.

"The order will require masking indoors regardless of vaccination status, Los Angeles County Health Officer Dr. Muntu Davis said in a news conference Thursday."

Hmmm, that seems strange. What's the vaccination for again? Just kidding. Who cares if it does anything. People need to shut the eff up and do what they are told. It's not your body and it's not your choice. This is not the 20th century. It's the 21st century.
 
2021-07-20 10:33:59 PM  
Well there is seldom a shortage of used gym equipment available on the cheap. Thanks for keeping that trend popping, I guess.
 
2021-07-20 10:34:36 PM  
Wow. At my gym we had to prove vaccination status with our CDC cards to be allowed in maskless.

I like my gym.
 
2021-07-20 10:38:08 PM  
Gyms are turning into quite a vaccination flashpoint in Toronto.

There might have been a thread already - one of the biggest chains, GoodLife, recently came under fire for stating that it wouldn't require vaccination proof from members.

That's several steps removed from the idiot in TFA, but commerce is definitely butting its head against public health in this particular business sector.

Last guy in that city that defied health orders had the police put new locks on the doors and then he was arrested after he broke in.

He grifted over 300k from his fellow plague rats though so he made out pretty well.

The capability and effort required to fake a code that both matches the name and the result is well past that of 99.99% of the 1.2 million people that it would apply to. That is a failure rate I am willing to live with.
