Letter: During pandemic, good mental and physical health is crucial

It is entirely unfair to allow congestion in malls, grocery stores, restaurants and other places, but restrict gym use
letters

Editor:

I would like to express my utmost disappointment with the current pandemic-related gym/fitness restrictions being imposed on facilities provincewide.

At the same time, I commend the owners of No Limits Fitness — of which I have been a member since it opened — for protesting these restrictions and staying open.

Not only is the provincial government once again impacting small and medium-sized businesses’ ability to survive financially and thrive, but government is also putting at risk the mental and physical health of countless people.

Attendees of gym facilities are already fully vaccinated, as required by law. These businesses have followed every guideline set out and customers have done all they can to prevent the spread of the current circulating virus.

It is entirely unfair to allow congestion in malls, grocery stores, restaurants and other places, but restrict gym use.

Unless everything is shut down, it is unfair and unreasonable to restrict our efforts to maintain our health and to promote positive connection and community among patrons.

We have been through enough.
