We are calling on the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and the government to reverse the closure of gyms in the region.
There is limited scientific basis for this decision. Data at local and national level show that gyms are safe with low Covid-19 transmission rates.
Councillor Andy Corkhill, Liberal Democrat candidate for Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, is fully behind the campaign to keep our gyms open.
"Gyms are vital in supporting mental and physical wellbeing with many people disappointed to have these facilities taken away from them.
Many of our gyms have taken extraordinary steps to sanitize their studios and stop the spread of Covid-19. It seems bonkers to me that we should keep the likes of Wetherspoons open but not our gyms"
