This week Ohio will see gyms and fitness centers, pools and Bureau of Motor Vehicles reopen, all on Tuesday, May 26. The Ohio Department of Health has issued guidelines and requirements for different businesses as they reopen.
Any personal fitness venues, such as gyms and dance studios must ensure there is six feet between members or clients. Fitness equipment must be spaced six feet apart and excess seating must be removed to discourage lingering.
Lost and founds will not be permitted. Class sizes should be reduced to accommodate six feet between each member.

Pools are permitted to reopen Tuesday, although water parks are not included. Pool owners and managers should post information around the pool and surrounding areas to remind visitors to stay home if they feel unwell, as well as reminding them to social distance and reminding them not to gather in groups outside of their own household.
Every other or every third locker should be blocked off to ensure social distancing in locker rooms. Pool owners should also mark six feet of distance using lane lines or tables and chairs on pool decks to ensure patrons follow social distancing in the water.
