As gyms have begun to reopen in various spots across the country, they have done so with restrictions. For example, in all Planet Fitness facilities until further notice, patrons will need to wear masks while exercising.

Even in facilities or in states where masks are not mandated, it is still good practice to wear a mask; as masks have been shown to cut transmission of the virus by over 80%.

Kaley Cuoco, known for her role in The Big Bang Theory, modeled this good practice on Instagram by showing a video of her jump-roping while wearing a mask...

...only to be confronted by folks claiming that she was doing something wrong by wearing a mask.

Most of the arguments were geared toward the idea that breathing in CO2 while you work out is dangerous, which has been debunked, as most experts say workouts in a mask are "generally safe."

Cuoco responded to the mask comments.

"For everyone and their mask comments. I wear a mask when I'm in an enclosed space around others, which I was."
"I also wear a mask when I'm outside around others. I'm protecting myself and everyone around me."
"That's why I choose to wear a mask. Thanks for playing."

As the pandemic in the USA is far from over, experts urge everyone to wear masks in public places so that we can get the virus under control and go back to our lives.

Cuoco modeling that will hopefully inspire others to wear masks as well.
