Another day, another change of rules.
Just a few days after the government allowed restaurants and cafes to sit four people per table, they have now allowed gyms to reopen its doors.
Terms and conditions apply
Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced during his daily press briefing on Saturday (17 October) that gyms located in Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Putrajaya and other areas affected by the current Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) can now reopen.
Gyms in those areas can reopen on Monday (19 October), Malay Mail
The reason that gyms are allowed to reopen is because training and workout sessions were mostly done solo rather than in groups, and those excercising in gyms usually distanced themselves from one another.
“After looking into the matter, the special meeting agreed to allow gyms to operate normally.
“However it must abide by tight standard operating procedures, like that issued during the initial CMCO,” he was quoted as well.
In addition to gyms, futsal courts and football fields are also allowed to operate beginning next Monday, but only for training purposes, Ismail said.
However, those who wish to use these sporting facilities need to follows SOPs set by the government, which include a maximum capacity of ten people at any one time.
Ismail further said that the Youth and Sports Ministry will be furnishing more details and SOPs in the near future.
So..yay, we guess?
