Willis Tower fitness center, club close for cleaning after member tests positive for COVID-19
Crews have been cleaning the building “day and night,” and the person remains self-quarantined for 14 days, officials said.
A club and fitness center at Willis Tower were closed for cleaning Wednesday after a member tested positive for coronavirus.
The person who tested positive for the virus, COVID-19, visited the building as recently as Friday to pick up carry-out food from the Metropolitan Club, according to an email from a Willis Tower tenant to their employees.
They also visited the Tone Fitness Center at 9 p.m. on March 9 and March 11.
The person remains self-quarantined for 14 days, according to an emailed statement from Willis Tower owner EQ Office.
“The safety and health of all EQ property tenants, employees and visitors is our top priority,” the statement read in part.
Crews have been cleaning the building according to health department guidelines in the areas where the person traveled, according to EQ Office.
The fitness center will be closed until at least March 31, the tenant email states. It was unclear how long the Metropolitan Club would be closed.
On Wednesday, health officials said the tally of statewide coronavirus cases had risen to 288.
