A gym owner in Plantation, Florida was arrested for not making all his clients who worked out to wear face masks. Michael Carnevale was contesting authorities’ decision to close his gym on Monday when he was arrested. The owner wanted his members to choose whether or not they should wear a face mask during workouts.
He owns Fitness 1440 and is one of the many business owners who feels the orders to wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic are intrusive. Officers locked the doors of his business.
