DETROIT – A federal judge has ruled indoor gyms in the state of Michigan can reopen next week.
Indoor gyms can now reopen Thursday (June 25).
This is a major ruling for gym owners and Michigan residents who wanted to get back to the gym to exercise.
- Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extends Michigan state of emergency until July 16
- Lawmakers tasked with fixing Michigan unemployment problems
The ruling was made by U.S. District Judge Paul Maloney in the Western District of Michigan after a lawsuit was filed by the League of Independent Fitness Facilities.
The judge granted a preliminary injunction against Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order that closed gyms across the state.
Gyms will have to make sure employees and customers follow social distancing protocols.
Local 4 reached out to the governor’s office but has not yet heard back.
