Since the Finger Lakes and other regions entered ‘Phase 4’ gyms have been eagerly waiting reopening.
A numbef of other businesses, like casinos, have been waiting too. So far, there hasn’t been any guidance when gyms might open.
At the start of the reopening process, when the region was only in ‘Phase 1’, state guidance indicated that gyms would be part of the fourth phase.
However, that hasn’t happened.
Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce president Bob Duffy said Tuesday he still does not know when gyms will reopen. The Governor chose him to lead the effort in the Finger Lakes, even though he doesn’t have a deciding vote in when things reopen in the region.
“We push every day,” Duffy said. “We also understand the slowness as well and it’s just hoping to hear…is it going to be in a short term or longer term down the road? That’s what we’re asking for is just some sense of certainty.”
“I’ve actually asked if it’s not gonna be allowed to open for some time, to let us know so we can tell people,” Duffy added, speaking with 13WHAM. “As opposed to every day people are looking for answers and we’re hoping to get some sense in the near future.”
