Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez were spotted grabbing a workout together in what appeared to be a publicly closed Miami gym Wednesday before a 30-day statewide order was implemented for Florida residents to stay indoors went into effect in attempts to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
In photos obtained by PEOPLE, the couple was seen leaving a building with a sign reading, "The gym is not open. Stay Home. Stay Safe," clad in workout clothes and having clearly worked up a sweat. Lopez looks chic in a red sports bra and matching bandanna-print leggings, while the former MLB player kept it casual in dark tee and matching sporty jacket. See their photos here.
Wednesday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced there would be a stay-at-home order mandated beginning at 12:01 a.m. Friday, telling reporters in a press briefing, "It makes sense to make this move now," as per The Miami Herald. The mandate will last until April 30, and will allow people to leave their homes only for "essential services" such as grocery shopping, buying gas or medicine, attending doctors' appointments and exercising outdoors while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
Lopez and Rodriguez have been practicing social distancing with their family at home, sharing on social media a number of TikTok dance videos and sweet glimpses into their lives. On March 18, Lopez shared a video of 12-year-old son Max wheeling up to Rodriguez on a hoverboard while bringing him a sparkling water on a tray, doing spins while pouring the water into the cup in a true show of talent.
