All yoga institutes and gymnasiums will be allowed to open from tomorrow as per the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) announced by the Punjab Government.

Kapurthala Deputy Commissioner Deepti Uppal told gym operators that they should calculate the capacity of the place based on the criteria of 4 sq m or approximately 40 sq feet per person. For example, if the size of the gym is 1,000 sq feet then not more than 25 persons would be permitted at one time. She said special teams of civil and police officials had been constituted to ensure the compliance of the instructions by the owners of gyms.

She said the staff members and visitors should maintain a physical distance of at least six feet. She also made it clear that all yoga institutes and gyms in the containment zones would continue to remain shut.

Besides, an advisory has been issued for those persons who are above 65 years of age, person with co-morbidity, pregnant women and children below the age of 10 years that they should not use gyms in closed spaces. She said the use of face masks would be mandatory at all times. However, during yoga exercise or exercising in gymnasiums, only a visor may be used.
