Welsh Government have updated their advice and guidance on masks.

Masks will now be required in all indoor public places, for both customers and staff. This includes a wide range of locations, such as shops and shopping centres, places of worship, hairdressers and salons, cinemas and museums, gyms and leisure centres, and anywhere that is open to members of the public.

Gym and Leisure Centres users will now need to wear a mask when they enter the building and in non-exercise areas as an extra precaution to protect themselves and the staff. Service users will need to keep the mask on if they’re preparing to exercise, changing or undertaking any activity that isn’t strenuous, especially when in close contact with other people.

However, according the World Health Organisation guidelines it is not advisable to wear masks when exercising as sweat can cause the face covering to become wet quite quickly. This makes it difficult to breathe and promoting the growth of microorganisms. It advises service users to maintain physical distance from others as one of the most important preventative measures during exercise.

We thank you in advance for your continued support. We look forward to welcoming you back to Ceredigion County Council Gyms and Leisure Centres.

Together, we can keep Ceredigion safe.
