    For months gyms in Hessen were closed. Now Prime Minister Volker Bouffier has announced changes.

    After the Corona summit between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the heads of state, Prime Minister Volker Bouffier announced new COVID19 rules for Hessen. These include contact restrictions, openings of shops such as home improvement stores and others. There is also far-reaching news for the gyms in Hessen from Monday March 8.

    Gyms in Hessen to reopen:

    Because they should reopen. However, this is under special hygiene regulations, which, according to Bouffier, are inevitable in the COVID19 crisis. Apparently the system for the gyms in Hessen will be based on the new system for shopping in retail stores: Click & Meet. The Prime Minister says: "They need a personal preassigned appointment."

    Gyms in Hessen were closed for a long time - now they will reopen under restrictions:

    However, this does not mean that athletes have to train alone in the gyms in Hessen. In the gyms in Hessen, 40 square meters per person per appointment are necessary to keep the necessary distance. "Various hygiene regulations," as Bouffier calls it, will also apply. The new rules will apply from Monday March 8 initially until March 28.
