It has been no secret that we have been steadfast in reminding everyone about following safety protocols and guidelines when it comes to engaging in fitness activities outside and dealing with Covid-19.
It may be unpopular at times, but when you have a first-hand look at the effect of this Pandemic in the lives of the front-liners and the industry as a whole, we need to act.
Whenever we post, the goal is to always remind everyone that the virus is still out there and never instigate any hurt or hate.
That was not achieved yesterday when we posted an image of a couple in BGC for what we thought was an improper wearing of masks while running in the city.
We have already gotten in touch with the one who took the image and has heard the side of the concerned party.
With cases of Covid-19 continuously rising, especially in the BGC area, we have expressed our side and our concerns to both parties as well.
In the end, it is clear that the message that we wanted to convey was not addressed properly and we take full responsibility for it. We have talked to the aggrieved party and apologized for putting them in a vulnerable position and have fully expressed our regrets in doing so. We have taken the post down right away as soon as we realized it was sending the wrong message.
Our intention is to just remind everyone to always practice proper safety protocols. We will use this situation to convey that message in a better way.
