Judge Rules Gyms Can Reopen Within Michigan
Monday, June 22, 2020

A federal judge has ruled that gyms and fitness centers can reopen next week within the state of Michigan.

Judge Paul Maloney said at the end of last week that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s administration had failed to show any rational link between the coronavirus threat and the business shutdown.

Maloney noted that gyms are closed while restaurants, bars, barbershops and hair salons are back in business.

Whitmer did state that she is planning to appeal that decision, as the governor had planned to reopen gyms, movie theaters and bowling alleys by July 4th if coronavirus case trends remain favorable.

In less-populous northern Michigan, gyms and fitness centers were permitted to reopen on June 10th.
