Gyms & Churches Now Able to Open at 50% Capacity Only

Kareem Musa

Fitness buffs will be happy as the Minister of Home Affairs announced that they will now be allowed to open….but, with only fifty percent capacity and by appointment only.  Additionally, gym owners must have a log of each customer, their contact number, and respective temperature reading upon entering the facility.


Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs

“Gyms can now open and they are to operate at a fifty percent capacity at any given time. So similar to restaurants, gyms can also operate but at fifty percent capacity. The gym must, like restaurants, must be properly ventilated. The gym owners and operators are also required to sanitize regularly; sanitize all of their equipment after each and every use. So if one individual is using it and then shifts over to another machine, the gym operator is to ensure that the equipment is sanitized before another person uses that particular piece of equipment.”

Capacity for churches has also been increased from ten persons to fifty percent capacity, but is restricted to a one-hour service.
