Jackie Lemer started this petition to Governor Doug Ducey

During this difficult time it is more important than ever to take care of both our mental and physical health.  One way that many of us do this is to take classes at small locally owned fitness and yoga studios.  I am asking that Governor Ducey exempt small fitness and yoga studios from the executive order and allow them to stay open.  
Fitness and activity are essential to fighting COVID-19.  Healthy lifestyles can add years to someone’s life, helping to increase lung capacity; decrease hypertension; and reduce the risk of many diseases including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and obesity. These are all things that put people at a higher risk of Covid-19.  
Small studios do not have thousands of members walking through their doors.  They have somewhere between 50 to a couple of hundred members total.  Small studios can easily limit class sizes to 10 or less.  Since classes are small, owners and trainers can easily manage the CDC guidelines for COVID-19 and social distancing.

The owners and trainers of these studios are our friends and neighbors; they work hard to provide us a safe space to maintain our mental and physical health.  Let’s help them keep their doors open!
