Michigan's Gov. Gretchen Whitmer made the announcement on Thursday that gyms across Michigan will all be allowed to reopen on Wednesday, Sept. 9. Gyms have been closed since March and now will reopen with limitations. Gyms can reopen with masks at all times, even while exercising, six feet of distance must be allowed between people, equipment must be cleaned throughout the facilities.
For some reason, she has not made the announcement on reopening movie theaters quite yet.
“Throughout this pandemic, we have followed the best science and data available to make decisions that will keep Michiganders safe, and our hard work is paying off. Today we are announcing the reopening of gyms and pools with strict safety measures in place to protect patrons and their families,” said Governor Whitmer. “I urge everyone who plans to hit the gym after these orders go into effect to take these precautions seriously and do everything in their power to protect themselves and their families. Be smart, and stay safe.”
