If you are looking for the reopening status of gyms in India, look no further. In Unlock 3 of the COVID-19, the Government of India has allowed gyms to operate from August 5. In this regard, a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) has been issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) for ensuring social distancing and to contain the spread of COVID-19.
But it’s not as straightforward as it seems. State is the final authority on whether the gyms can actually open. You can see whether your gym can open based on the table below.
I will keep updating this table below. If you have a request to add your state / city to the list, please mention in the comments below.
|Tamil Nadu||Yes *(10th Aug 2020)|
|Delhi||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Bihar||No (until 16th Aug 2020)|
|Kerala||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Uttar Pradesh||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Jammu & Kashmir||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Telangana||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Andhra Pradesh||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Madhya Pradesh||No *(No clarity yet)|
|Goa||No *(No clarity yet)|
If you are one of those gyms that have been allowed to open, and have decided to open (many of you are understandably not) I wish you all the best.
However, before you start operating your gyms after five long months of lockdown, it is important to know the precautions that need to be taken. Lack of compliance may enforce shut down of your facility by government officials. Cashflows may take time to ease and a forced shutdown may put an additional strain on your business. This is make-or-break time for gyms.
If you are looking for the SOP guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), you can download it here. They’re pretty straight forward.
