Under the government's resolution, at least 20 square meter of floor space need to be ensured for one person, including staff members, at gyms, and no more than five people, excluding coaches, can attend group classes.

Asked by BNS, representatives of gyms said earlier they were waiting for the reopening very much but were also disappointed over the decision not to allow gyms to reopen their pool areas. Vidmantas Siugzdinis, head of the Impuls and Lemon Gym gyms, told BNS he was not satisfied with strict requirements and still closed pool areas.

As of Monday, pools and saunas can only reopen at accommodation establishments but only for family members. Moreover, swimming classes for children or those from one class can be held in pools.

Moreover, outdoor sports, leisure and entertainments activities can resume with up to 10 people, or up to 50 people, if one person get 50 square meters of floor space.

Returning workers will be tested for the coronavirus preventively.

Gyms have been closed in Lithuania since early November when the country was placed under the second national lockdown.
