Inslee Issues Changes- Will Tri-City Gyms Re-Open Now?
According to a release out of Gov. Inslee's office, the following changes are taking place affecting gyms, like those in B-F Counties, and it read in part:
"Gov. Jay Inslee today announced updated guidance for indoor fitness and training facilities as part of Washington's Safe Start phased reopening plan.
Effective today, indoor fitness and training facilities are allowed to operate in Modified Phase 1 counties under Phase 2 guidance. This means that facilities like gyms, yoga studios, and indoor sports facilities can open for personal fitness and training, group fitness classes, and practice for certain low- and medium-contact sports. Occupancy is limited to ensure proper physical distancing, and masks are required."
So apparently, that means that a number of health clubs, and gyms, and fitness centers will be re opening soon? We're hoping so.
Although there's no printed evidence of this, or confirmation by the state, it appears with the rapid approach of fall, perhaps state officials realized it's going to be more difficult for people to exercise outdoors--performing workouts they would normally do indoors.
Who knows. It's about time
