The yoga-focused firm said its customers and staff can enjoy a Fever Free Zone in its studios in the New Town, Quartermile and Leith Walk. This involves temperature checks on entry, activating a six-hour pass, or – if a high temperature is detected, allowing for the passing on of details to contact tracing services.

Tribe MD James Wilson said: “Fever Free Zone have enabled us to adapt to the new normal. As you would expect from a wellness business, the health and wellbeing of our members and staff is paramount.

“It was [therefore] a logical and progressive step to enlist the expertise of Paul Nelson to ensure all of our studios are fully equipped with Fever Free Zone during what has been the most challenging episode we’ve ever faced.

“Our clientele are passionate about wellness and want to resume that valuable part of their daily lives as quickly as possible, but they also want reassurances that they will be perfectly safe in doing so, which is where Fever Free Zone has played a pivotal role.

“Our technology supports responsible businesses to become gatekeepers to the economy as well as reassuring customers of a fever free space in which they can spend their time."

The boutique fitness chain, which welcomes about 22,000 users a year, recently reopened its studios.
