The B.C. government announced Tuesday a gradual reopening for gyms and fitness centres on Jan. 20.
The reopening will be based on strict COVID-19 safety plans, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said at a media briefing.
These plans include occupancy limits based on seven square metres per person, up to a maximum of 25 people per space, Henry added.
Masks must be worn at all times with the exception of when someone is exercising, Henry said but if people can keep their masks on when exercising, that is best.
There will be no changes for the B.C. vaccine card program, Henry said Tuesday.
The province has extended all other restrictions, including the 50-per-cent capacity limit for all venues, and keeping bars and clubs closed, until they are reviewed Feb. 16.
