MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — More than 200 people were potentially exposed to COVID-19 at a Planet Fitness in West Virginia after someone who worked out there last week tested positive for the virus.

The Monongalia County Health Department sent a warning Saturday, urging anyone who used the Planet Fitness on Pierpoint Drive in Morgantown between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 24 to self-quarantine for 14 days. 

Planet Fitness said this particular facility is temporarily closed for a deep cleaning "out of an abundance of caution."

West Virginia, along with about half of the states in the country, is seeing an increase in COVID-19 cases. 

In the past 10 days, West Virginia has seen an increase of about 400 cases. In the 10 days prior to that, cases rose by about 240.
