DANCE, CHEERLEADING & MARTIAL ARTS ALLOWED TO RESUME MONDAY
On Friday, Gov. Justice clarified that several more recreational
activities, including gymnastics, dance, cheerleading, and martial arts,
will be among those allowed to resume operations, with limitations, on
this coming Monday, May 18.
“We’re trying to reopen as fast as we possibly can. But, at the end of
the day, we’re going to do so under the guidance of our medical experts,”
Gov. Justice said. “This is a very fluid situation. There’s no playbook.
But we’re doing the very best we can to keep moving.”
Yesterday, the Governor announced that all types of fitness centers,
gymnasiums, and recreation centers will be permitted to open on Monday,
May 18, as part of his reopening plan: West Virginia
Strong – The Comeback.
Gov. Justice has also issued an executive order,
formalizing all of the May 18 reopenings.
Reopenings in all phases of the Governor’s plan are required to follow
additional guidelines to help keep their patrons and all West Virginians
as safe as possible.
Guidance documents for additional types
of businesses included in The Comeback are available online.
Businesses included in each phase of this reopening plan are not required
to resume operations on any specific date. This Comeback plan provides
the option for reopening for specific businesses, but only if they are
able to do so safely.
