Closed petition Allow gyms and leisure centres to reopen

The goal is to get the government to rethink their decision to close gyms and leisure centres, and to come to an agreement to reopen them. Many people utilise such facilities for mental health and wellbeing purposes and it would be beneficial to reopen in a controlled manner.

There are processes that can be put in place to ensure distancing and hygiene policies are adhered to, and can be done in a safer and more manageable way than current shops that are open and most certainly more manageable than the ‘non essential’ shops’ that are being considered.
