Gyms Sue ODH To Reopen


Thirty five independent gyms across the state have joined together in filing a lawsuit against the Ohio Health Department asking for the reopening of fitness centers. 

The lawsuit says the state's updated Stay Safe order provides a path to open many industries, but disregards the capability of gyms to operate safely. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine responded to a question about the lawsuit at today's briefing.

The gyms filed the complaint with assistance from the Columbus-based 1851 Center for Constitutional Law. It's pending in the Lake County Court of Common Pleas.

Mike Foley joined WCBE in February 2000, coming from WUFT in Gainesville, Florida. He earned Broadcasting and Journalism degrees from the University of Florida.
