4:34 am
little risk. it is basically easing mask restrictions the same way we had earlier on for places where we me everybody is up to date on their vaccines like gyms and offices. so i think it is okay. it is not going to -- i don't see it causing really anything in the way of problems or real big transmission risk. >> for dave, coowner of mxthree fitness, the announcement is a welcome one, and even one that might bring people back for their regular sweat sessions. >> the city is saying it is safe to go into the gyms if you are boosted without a mask. and that is a big step forward. that is a real reassurance for someone who may have been on the fence a little bit. >> reporter: he says the constant flip flopping as variants spike and fall is tough on an industry that has taken nearly two years of hits. his gym won't go mask-free right away. >> our gym in particular. we're going to wait a little bit to allow everybody a chance to get boosted. >> reporter: with case rates
