Rejected petition Re-open gyms in lockdown for mental and physical well being. Extremely important!
Mental health and physical well being is being negatively impacted upon due to lockdown and cold weather conditions.
With the proper cleaning protocols gyms already have in place, plus a booking system to manage numbers, they are safer than a supermarket and provide a service that is just as important.
With lockdowns set to be extended indefinitely it is imperative we look after our mental and physical well being.
