Montana gym owners started a petition in an attempt to have Gov. Steve Bullock allow gyms to reopen under Phase One.
A gym owner from Billings created the petition and has close to 5,000 signatures, as of May 3rd, 2020.
MTN news spoke with the general manager at Crossroads Fitness Center, a supporter of the petition. Crossroads says that gyms can implement the necessary safety guidelines to help prevent further spreading of the virus.
These are some of many things Crossroads said they and other gyms can do to reopen in phase one.
