According to government approval, dance studios, fitness centers, gyms and indoor sports facilities will open on May 17th. However, people will be able to work-out in limited conditions. There will be only 10 people inside, each of whom should have 15 square meters. Furthermore, only two people can train in the same fitness group.
When entering sports facilities, people will be required to show their negative coronavirus test results, a vaccination certificate, or a documented proof of having COVID-19 within the last 90 days. The PCR test can be valid for no more than seven days, and the antigen test for no more than 72 hours.
Visitors to the indoor sports facilities must maintain a mandatory distance of at least two meters between each other, if they are not members of one family. According to the government decree, it will not be possible to use showers and changing rooms in fitness centers and gyms.
ČKF estimates the loss of indoor sports grounds, swimming pools and saunas at more than five billion Czech crowns. Fitness centers are one of the longest-lasting non-functional indoor venues. Due to the second wave of the pandemic, the government banned them from October 9th.
