Over the past few months, the Tyrone Fitness and Wellness Center had to follow Governor Wolf’s shut down order to support efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  As Blair County transitions into the green phase of the Governor Wolf’s reopening plan, our facility is permitted to reopen.  We recognize the importance of health, wellness, and illness prevention.    As we prepare for our reopening on Monday June 8th we want to be transparent and share with our valued Fitness Center members and our community our reopening plan.
