GOVERNOR POLIS: Colorado Gym and Fitness Studios Are Essential Too - Open April 26th
Allow Gyms and Fitness Studios to reopen to provide service using reasonable precautions and sanitation protocols.
President Donald Trump announced federal guidelines to reopen the U.S. on Thursday, April 16th; we want to encourage our governor to follow "The Opening up America" Guidelines and allow Gyms to open if they adhere to strict physical distancing and sanitation protocols.

Why is this important?
American taxpayers have dutifully paid our elected representatives and government workers since the passage of the 16th Amendment in 1913. However, instead of a balanced response (like mandating masks and testing early), the livelihood of millions of small business owners and their employees have been deemed "inessential" (i.e., destroyed) due to overreaching COVID19 policies implemented by our elected officials.
We the people know that EVERY job that puts the food on the table is an essential one. Join us as we demand a reasonable, timely, and non-fear-based solution from our elected officials that balances the both concern for public health AND the decades of hard work and sacrifices from the backbone of America, our unsung small business heroes.
