Gyms got the go ahead to reopen next Monday, June 29th.
Ronan Murphy from ToneFit Gym joined Dermot & Dave this morning to chat about the new rules.
If sufficient space is available than more than one group can conduct an activity simultaneously. However it is advised that space should be maximised where possible for participants in order to risk mitigate.
- Groups should act independently, there should be no interaction between groups.
- Start and finish times of different groups should be staggered to allow appropriate flow and minimise congregation of people.
- Shorter duration sessions will likely reduce risk.
NGBs will need to assess as to how many groups can safely exercise concomitantly on a pitch or training area.
To have two groups on a pitch there may have to be less than 15 in the group in order to participate safely. Attention should be given as to whether equipment (i.e. a ball) can cross over to other group and a greater distance between groups should be sought if this is possible.
There should be no more than two groups on a games pitch or training area at one time.
