More than 200 gym-goers in West Virginia are being urged to quarantine after a Planet Fitness client tested positive for Covid-19, health officials say.

'Anyone who was at Planet Fitness between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Wednesday, June 24 should stay at home for 14 days since being exposed, which would be until Wednesday, July 8,' a statement by the Monongalia County Health Department says, adding that 'about 205' people were at the gym during that window of time.

'We are urging people to get testing if they become symptomatic,' said health department spokeswoman Mary Wade Burnside in an email to CNN.

West Virginia is seeing an increase in cases, about 400 in the past 12 days, the Monongalia County Health Department reports. In the 10 days prior to that, cases rose by about 240.

As of 10 a.m. Monday, there have been 2,849 probable and confirmed coronavirus cases and 93 coronavirus-related deaths across the state.

'Out of an abundance of caution and in the interest of the community, we are closing the club for an additional deep cleaning,' Planet Fitness Morgantown said in a recording when called by CNN for comment, adding the club will reopen at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

The Planet Fitness corporate office was notified that a member of the Morgantown gym tested positive, and it is not aware of any additional members or employees reporting symptoms, according to statement from McCall Gosselin, Senior Vice President of Communications.

'We will continue to take every necessary precaution to ensure the safety of our community, and we have taken a number of steps across all of our locations, which include enhanced cleanliness and sanitization policies and procedures, extensive training for staff, physical distancing measures, reducing physical touch points in the club with touchless check-in, and more,' the statement said.

CNN has reached out to the Monongalia County Health Department for updates and additional comment.
