Sued Vermont Gym Reopens As Outdoor Fitness Facility

May 19, 2020

The owner of a Rutland, Vermont fitness center who was ordered by a judge to close says he's moved the equipment outside into the parking lot and has reopened as an outdoor facility.

The Vermont attorney general on Friday sued Club Fitness of Vermont and owner Sean Manovill for staying open in violation of state rules and a judge hours later granted a temporary order barring the gym from operating.

But a police officer reported that people were exercising without masks or social distancing.  

Manovill said he closed after getting the order on Saturday and says the police accusations are false.

On Tuesday, he reopened as an outdoor fitness center.
