Gymnasiums and Fitness Centres Make a Plea to The Government to Ease Restrictions

Muscat: Among the worst impacted sectors during the pandemic – owners of gymnasiums, sports, and fitness centers, have made an impassioned plea to the Supreme Committee to allow them to resume activities under strict supervision to enforce healthcare guidelines.

After a brief respite earlier this year, The Supreme Committee had announced that all sports and fitness-related activities would be suspended starting April 1st, 2021. At a time where markets are opened in a limited manner – this ban has landed another blow to an ailing sector due to pending bills and complete suspension of income. 

To ameliorate the effects of the ban, the owners and staff of several such establishments submitted an impassioned plea to The Supreme Committee, to allow them to resume business – under the strictest of guidelines, in order for them to resume their livelihood.

With unpaid bills, salaries, and financial commitments from sponsors looming, the members of this sector find themselves hard-pressed to meet their financial obligations.
