Governor Adjusts Ban On Group Fitness Activities

Statewide Iowa — Governor Kim Reynolds has modified her ban on certain group fitness activities that she ordered on Monday, November 16th.

The governor did not order gyms, fitness centers, or exercise clubs to close, but her Monday night declaration said: “all group fitness activities are prohibited.” Late Wednesday, November 18th, she changed the proclamation to say that group fitness activities may continue if social distancing is enforced.

Her office had been fielding questions and complaints from facilities that offer exercise classes and yoga sessions. The governor’s adjustment means those kinds of activities may continue if participants are able to stay at least six feet apart while exercising.
