Brooks Gump, Falk Family Endowed Professor in Falk College, was interviewed by The Daily Beast for the piece “MAGA Fanatic Gym Tycoon Leads Anti-Lockdown Uprising.” The piece also ran across the Yahoo platforms internationally. Gump, who studies health promotion, says that the actions of Newtown Athletic Club show a lack of care for others, and also does not instill confidence that other gyms will enforce measures to reduce the spread of COVID 19, such as mask wearing. “This sort of behavior—namely, disregarding advice and directives—by an organization or elected leader undermines all those in the community that are doing their best to abide by the rules,” says Gump.
