Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has announced further easing of lockdown measures on Thursday, July 9. For those hoping to return to the gym and sports centres, the Government has now announced dates when these businesses can reopen.
Outdoor swimming pools in England are to begin reopening from Saturday, July 11.
Indoor pools, gyms and other sports facilities are to follow by opening on July 25.
Mr Dowden said in a statement: “Our culture, heritage and arts are too precious to lose. That’s why we’re protecting venues like theatres from redevelopment if they fall on hard times.
“We are also giving further clarity on restart dates in our roadmap back to performance. From July 11 we can all enjoy performances outdoors with social distancing and we are working hard to get indoor audiences back as soon as we safely can, following pilots.”
