The Tamil Nadu government on Wednesday announced that private gyms (only standalone ones) could open for customers aged under 50 from August 10.

An official release stated that a standard operating procedure would be issued in this regard, and the conditions were to be strictly followed by the gyms.

The State government’s decision follows representations from the Tamil Nadu Gym Owners’ and Trainers’ Welfare Association and several gym owners, who requested the Chief Minister to allow gyms to open.

Private gyms have stayed shut across the State due to the lockdown imposed to contain the spread of COVID-19.
