Gyms, pools & leisure centres in the UK will be able to open from 25 July.
Oliver Dowden (Culture Secretary) announced gyms, pools and leisure centres can reopen from 25 July.
The government will issue ‘comprehensive guidance’ to ensure venues have the ‘support they need to reopen safely’.
It will include reducing the number of people using a facility at one time, smaller fitness classes and extra cleaning.
Mr Dowden said: “The reopening of gyms is the news millions across the country have been waiting for with many people desperate to jump on a spinning bike or dive into a pool.
“Our comprehensive guidance will ensure gyms, pools and leisure centres have the support they need to reopen safely for their customers and staff.
“Helping people return to gyms safely will also help the nation get match-fit to defeat this virus.”
UK government has also agreed to allow outdoor performances, with social distancing, to resume from 11 July.
