Two Phoenix gyms file motion against Governor Ducey

PHOENIX, Ariz (KVOA) - Two Phoenix-area gyms have filed a motion of contempt against Governor Doug Ducey because they are not satisfied with reopening parameters.

Mountainside Fitness and EOS Fitness say there is little scientific evidence that fitness centers operating with safety protocols pose a danger to public health.

Gov. Ducey closed gyms and other high-frequency businesses like bars in July in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19.

On Monday the Arizona Department of Health Services released benchmarks for reopening businesses based on the virus in the state.

Arizona is rated "substantial" which is above the benchmark set for safely reopening gyms.
