We’ve been disappointed to learn that additional regions in the UK are facing further COVID-19 restrictions. Subsequently, we are frustrated for the knock-on effect this will have for Clubs, Instructors and Members, where facilities are facing full closure or a pause in Group Exercise.
Whilst the control of the virus must be paramount, there is overwhelming evidence of an incredibly low rate of COVID transmission in gyms and leisure facilities (1.4% vs. 10% in restaurants or 3.4% in shops, as reported by the BBC).
We are working closely with ukactive and our other partners to petition the government to reconsider its position to keep these facilities open.
We remain committed to supporting our industry to make this happen.
