Wipe the locker/rack before putting your belongings
Either if your gym provides you with both disinfectants and paper towels or not, you need these as when you are about to put your things in your locker, you would not know if the previous user of the locker has wiped the locker before they left. For assurance, do a bit of spray and wipe before you put your things in the locker.
Wipe the machines and equipment before and after use
You cannot be too sure if the previous user have wiped the machines/equipment after usage. Therefore, playing it safe at all times is the best way to keep everything as hygienic as possible as the goal is to minimize the spread of the virus. So remember to wipe those machines and equipment before and after use.
Wash your hands before and after your workout
