Can I get COVID by touching my forehead?

I know they say to avoid touching your eyes and mouth and nose but by mistake I was at the gym and banged my forehead onto a weight holder would that be a risk?

    Probably lower risk than the actual fact of being in the gym.  It is a respiratory disease transmitted via droplets from breathing and coughing, gyms tend to promote people breathing more, both people breathing covid out and people breathing it in.

    Regarding the banging head on weight holder as long as you washed your hands before eating or touching mouth etc then you should be fine.
