As we head into fall more and more students are hitting the gym in preparation for the holidays. It is general knowledge that gyms are one of the dirtiest places one can find. Just a few of the many things that can ail you in gyms are athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm and staph which can turn into MRSA, which is associated with 86% of health-care associated infections.
Trying to find information about who cleans the gym here at ABAC is about as easy as pulling one’s own teeth. Chris Kinsey original reported that gym maintenance is the responsibility of Sodexo, from there you get referred to Robert Carpenter, from there you get nowhere.
So who cleans the gym? It has been rumored that CA’s clean it twice daily. There is a bottle of disinfectant and napkins in the gym. Is that all?
Ashley Selph, manager at Southern Bodies claims that aside from them setting out disinfectant, the employees themselves clean the gym twice daily, and have a professional come in once a week.
