Written by on 31st March 2021

Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford has confirmed when gyms, leisure centres and fitness facilities can reopen.

The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford revealed the date in which gym will be able to reopen whilst setting out a series of additional measures that will take Wales fully into Alert Level 3 by 17th May, subject to public health conditions remaining favourable.

On Monday 10 May:

  • Gyms, leisure centres and fitness facilities can reopen. This will include individual or one-to-one training but not exercise classes;
  • Also, Extended household will again allow two households to meet and have contact indoors.

First Minister, Mark Drakeford said:

Thanks to a real team effort across Wales, coronavirus cases remain stable, and the vaccination programme continues apace. As a result, the Welsh Government has the headroom to continue its careful, step-by-step approach to relaxing restrictions.

The review we have concluded this week, means we can continue with our programme of further re-opening of the economy and loosening the restrictions in place.

The First Minister added:

The sacrifices we have all made are having a positive effect in the battle against Coronavirus. This last year has been incredibly difficult for all of us and again I want to thank everyone for their efforts.

These efforts have allowed us to gradually ease the restrictions, to gradually introduce more elements of normal life.

With the weather improving, with more opportunities to see family and friends, there are reasons for optimism. However, we can’t let our guard down yet. We all still need to be vigilant, we still need to do our part to keep this deadly disease at bay.
