Another lost weekend for the leisure industry

It was confirmed today (August 7) that, from Monday, swimming pools, indoor gyms, and leisure centres can reopen.

Shadow Covid Recovery Minister Darren Millar MS commented:

“I am pleased that swimming pools and gyms will finally be able to open in Wales.

"Many people use such venues to help them to keep fit and rehabilitate following serious health problems or operations so the lack of access over the past few months will have taken its toll on them in particular.

"Weekends provide many working people with important opportunities to take advantage of leisure facilities so it's a great shame that the Welsh Government has chosen to implement these changes from Mondays rather than tomorrow as it will result in yet another lost weekend for everyone involved."
