Across the nation, many businesses including restaurants, bars, and gyms are shutting their doors due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. However, this does not include Tamra and Eddie Judge's Orange County gym, CUT Fitness — at least not yet. For now, The Real Housewives of Orange County pair's fitness studio will remain open for those who wish to use it.
On March 16, the company shared a notice on its Instagram account. "In light of the Pandemic, we are still open and taking extra measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus. We have hand sanitizers in every room, workout wipes and gloves available at the front desk," the caption reads.
The post continues: "Although we are a small micro gym, we have enough space to maintained 4-6’ space between one another. We are offering limited temporary memberships to non-members. We have 100% confidence in our members because we all contribute to maintaining the cleanliness of our facility."
In an Instagram Stories clip filmed at the gym on March 16, Tamra shared, "We are following the guidelines. If we need to shut down, we will shut down. We are constantly cleaning. We are a small group gym. We don't cater to the masses ever — never have more than probably 50 people in at a time."
