Rejected petition Keep the gyms open with 2m distance

Gyms should be considered as important as shops in order to protect the island’s health. They are a much less risk to Covid transmission than restaurants and pubs.

More details

Gyms and leisure centres must be classed as "essential services" to stop them being repeatedly closed during pandemics. We are urging all gym members to get to support their sport centre by signing the petition to encourage the Government to keep gyms open.
