Swimming pools and gyms in England will be allowed to reopen in the coming weeks, the government has confirmed, as part of the ongoing assessment of regulations to control the coronavirus pandemic.
Outdoor pools can open to the public again this Saturday - July 11 - with indoor pools, gyms and sports facilities following a fortnight later on July 25. Strict measures will be put in place to ensure the health and safety of staff and customers, including the maintaining of social distancing.
These measures will include timed entry to facilities, extra cleaning, smaller class sizes and limiting how many people can use a swimming pool at any one time.
