The MHA said in the guidelines that a standard operating procedure (SOP) will be issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MOHFW) for ensuring physical distancing and to contain the spread of COVID-19.

This comes as a relief to several gym owners and fitness trainers who have been facing massive financial losses after having been shut for nearly five months since March.

Several gym owners that TNM spoke to said that they are prepared to open once the government allows them to and that they are ready to take all necessary precautions if they are allowed to open. This includes physical distancing, regular sanitisation, temperature checks, among others. Some are also considering making wearing masks and gloves mandatory.

The MHA has also said that schools, coaching institutes, cinema halls, swimming pools, entertainment parks, theatres, bars, auditorium, assembly halls and similar places will continue to remain shut.

Social, political, sports, entertainment, academic, cultural, religious functions and other large congregations also will continue to remain prohibited.
