“organisations have taken extra measures to ensure all surfaces are clean, and we are in constant dialogue with Public Health England (PHE) to ensure they remain safe and within the guidelines set by the Chief Medical Officer.  “At this stage, the Government has not recommended that people stop going to gyms and leisure centres, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that people can continue to go out to exercise.
