Gyms to reopen as restrictions continue to ease


Gyms, indoor pools, yoga and dance studios will be able to reopen across NSW from Saturday 13 June as the NSW Government continues to ease COVID-19 restrictions.

Kid’s sport will also make a return, set to restart from Wednesday 1 July.

Health Minister Brad Hazzard said COVID-19 safety plans for each activity or sport are critical to enable this re-start.

“Sport and businesses will need to do things a little differently than in pre-COVID-19 times and following their safety plan is key to keeping people safe,” Mr Hazzard said.

“Re-opening kids’ sporting competitions on 1 July 2020 gives groups and local government which manages many of these facilities, time to work through all the new changes.”

The return date for adult community sport activities will be made at a later stage. 

From Saturday 13 June, the following will be allowed in NSW: 

  • fitness, gymnasiums, pilates, yoga and dance studios can reopen with up to 10 people per class and 100 people in an indoor venue
  • community centres, including their recreational facilities, can reopen
  • some indoor recreational facilities including pools and saunas can reopen with restricted numbers
  • tattoo and massage parlours can reopen with up to 10 clients.
