Should BC gyms be allowed to operate?

Poll: open the gyms?

Before Christmas, the provincial government announced new public health measures requiring fitness facilities to once again close in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Some gyms in the Interior have refused to close, citing the importance of exercise to mental health.

Interior Health has sent warning letters and issued some fines but a number of gyms are still open.

“I totally support them staying open, it's good for the public, it’s good for the individuals,” one man told Castanet.

“The way that things are going on right now, it’s good for people to relieve their stress that way and get in shape and feel better about themselves.”

“I think it's kind of silly that they're closing the gyms,” said another.
