ukactive has today (10 September) issued an update following the Government’s announced ‘Rule of Six’
Following the Government’s announcement that social gatherings of more than six people will be banned in England from 14 September, the Government has confirmed that organised sports, fitness and leisure activities that have been through COVID-secure protocols can continue, as can organised outdoor sports and physical activity events.
People can continue to use leisure facilities, including gyms and pools, and classes within these venues can continue as they are now. The new rule does mean that people should not arrive at these venues socially in groups of more than six.
Gyms, fitness, sports and leisure providers have stringent plans in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19, and these venues are classed as COVID-secure, given the measures they have introduced.
