A coalition of Ontario physicians and gym owners are hoping public health officials will recognize the importance of exercise to mental and physical well-being. Specifically, the group wants to partner with government and public health to safely keep gyms open during COVID. The doctors involved highlight the importance of exercise in keeping heart and stroke ailments, diabetes, certain cancers and other ailments at bay — the very comorbidities that contribute to negative COVID outcomes. On Wednesday, the group sent a letter to government and public health officials at municipal, provincial and federal levels, asking for help in keeping gyms open in the province. The goal is to work with officials to establish and enforce strict COVID protocols so that safe and sustainable gym operations can continue. The letter proposes such measures as pre-class registration, a COVID screening questionnaire, caps on class attendance, regular sanitization of equipment after every use, physical distancing and mask-wearing at all times except for during short, high-intensity workouts — again, guidelines that are already in place at many small gyms.
