Indoor gyms, fitness studios, indoor sports facilities and other indoor leisure centres for supervised activities for children ARE LEGALLY EXEMPT! from having to close

Police have been going around gyms, fitness studios etc that have refused to close, threatening them with fines that will double on each visit.

However, I notice that Police have been citing "Section 16(1) of the The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 which states that "A person responsible for carrying on a restricted business, or providing a restricted service, must cease to carry on that business or provide that service."

The trouble is, that Section 16(3) of the regulations states this, "The requirement in paragraph 16(1)—

(a)does not apply to any facilities provided in criminal justice accommodation, and

(b)is subject to the exceptions in regulation 17(6) and (8).

So, we look at the exceptions in regulation 17(6):

17(6) Regulation 16(1) does not prevent the use of—

(f) indoor gyms, fitness studios, indoor sports facilities and other indoor leisure centres for supervised activities for children
