Gyms in Northern Ireland get go-ahead to reopen on 10 July

Gyms and health clubs in Northern Ireland have been given the green light to reopen their doors on 10 July.

The Northern Ireland Executive has announced a range of measures to lift lockdown restrictions – including indicative dates for when businesses and industry sectors that remain closed will be allowed to reopen.

“Today we have reached the next rung in the ladder of our recovery journey, as we have been able to confirm the reopening of significant sections of our economy over the next number of weeks," said First Minister Arlene Foster.

“It’s important that all sectors have as much time as possible to plan ahead and prepare for safe reopening, which is why we have brought forward today a timetable with indicative dates for future relaxations.”

The dates are subject to change at short notice if there are signs of increases in the number of infections.

Health minister Robin Swann said: “In the event of any significant outbreaks or increase in transmission, the Executive has agreed that this timeline will be kept under review.

"None of this is without risk and will be subject to advice from our scientific and medical experts closer to the time of each proposed relaxation."

As well as gyms and health clubs, 10 July will see the opening of outdoor playgrounds.

Spas will be able to open a few days earlier, on 6 July.

Leisure centres, indoor sports courts and soft play areas, however, won't be allowed to reopen until 7 August at the earliest.

Resumption of contact sport training has been set for 29 June, with competitive sport set for a return on 17 July.

Reopening of seated venues – including cinemas – has been set for 29 July.
