Gyms Nationwide to Reopen on Saturday June 27th

Following the government's decision to open up restaurants, cafés, cinemas, theatres and sporting clubs, gyms will join in and reopen starting this Saturday June 27th.


Ah, the gym. A second home for many, and a focal point of self-consciousness for others. However you feel about the endless melody of grunting weightlifters, it looks like the gym hiatus is coming to an end as the government issued a decision for gyms across Egypt are to reopen their doors on June 27th, in line with the reopening of restaurants, cafés, sporting clubs, cinemas and theatres. But, once again – with the slow reintroduction of everything opening up - some rules will apply. Gyms will only be allowed to open at 25% capacity, between 6 AM and 9 PM. Health and safety measures are to be implemented in gyms, including continual sanitation of the space (but hey, even if there wasn't a global pandemic, you already wipe after yourself when you're done with that weight lift bench as a matter of public courtesy, right? Rrrrright?).

These new rules are subject to change in the future depending on the state of COVID-19 in Egypt, so keep it locked to #CairoScene for future updates.
