Ludhiana, January 11

The gym owners on Tuesday demanded from the District Administration to allow reopening of the gyms that were closed amid rising Covid-19 cases.

Members of the Gym Ekta Welfare Association went to meet the Deputy Commissioner and submitted a memorandum regarding their demand.

The association members said the orders were earlier issued to shut down the gyms in view of rising Covid-19 cases. They said the gyms in a few other districts have been allowed to reopen by following the Covid-19 guidelines. Thus, the gyms should be allowed to reopen in Ludhiana district too, they said.

Pardeep Appu, vice-chairman of the association said, “There are around 800-900 gyms here. We want these should be allowed to reopen. The gyms have been allowed to reopen in Sri Muktsar Sahib and Bathinda with fulfilling the guidelines related to Covid-19. We requested the DC to allow reopening of gyms in Ludhiana too as we will follow all the guidelines here too.”

Another member said they are facing financial losses due to the closure of the gyms once again amid the Covid-19 pandemic. “We are very disappointed since the gyms have been closed again. When the saloons, bars, etc, have been allowed operations with 50 per cent capacity, the operations at the gyms must be restored too. We assured the DC that we will follow all the guidelines,” he said.
