Robin Samuel started this petition to PRIME MINISTERS OFFICE

We want to keep the gyms open during this pandemic and earnestly request the PMO to consider it.  Health and fitness is not only important for the physical benefits but more importantly our mental health. In these difficult times when people have lost their jobs, lost a family member or been furloughed, the stress levels are really high.
Exercise has proven benefits by release of endorphins and makes a person feel happy and content. 
We have to understand this wave is not like the first one when people had the option to go cycling or running or train outside. We face a dark and cold winter season ahead where people are already exhausted and tired of the restrictions. People who are working from home are looking at the prospect of being stuck inside within the four walls for a long time. Going to the gym is a release for many people like myself. This will also help the economy as employees will not need to be furloughed or the gyms won’t have to close the doors in few months due to being unsustainable. Needless to say the gyms are already maintaining the current compliance with cleaning and hygiene standards and will continue doing so. 
A spike in cases is not something anybody looks ahead to but, closing the gyms will be detrimental to the health of this nation. Please consider a change
