The government are allowing gyms to reopen across Liverpool starting on Friday.
They were forced to close when the region was placed into high level of coronavirus restrictions. Steve Rotheram, Liverpool Metro Mayor, stated that they will be allowed to reopen this Friday but soft play areas will remain closed. It has been illegal to reopen gyms since 14th October when the region went into the highest level of Covid-19 restrictions.
Many gyms in the area remained open despite the rules and was fined £1000 including Body Tech Fitness and Wirral. The government would put legislation to rescind the original decision to close the gyms and other leisure centres which will allow them to open on Friday.
