PHOENIX, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) – More than 1,100 Arizona businesses like bars and gyms have applied to state health officials to reopen. It appears at least one Mountainside Fitness plans to open next week, despite not getting approval from the Arizona Department of Health Services. Tom Hatten, CEO and founder of the gyms, was not available for an interview on Saturday, and their spokesperson did not release a comment.
The fitness gym directed Arizona’s Family to a letter sent to their members, which states that they have not received a response from ADHS regarding their application to reopen. Despite that, Mountainside said they plan to reopen during the week of August 24. The letter also states that they hired an outside health assessment company to certify their gym for reopening. The company is called Healthy Verify.
