Georgia governor Brian Kemp’s opening of certain businesses, including gyms, did not change anything for high school athletes.

Georgia High School Association executive director Robin Hines announced Tuesday that high school sports and activities, including training, are still suspended until further notice. School gyms are not to be used for training, the GHSA pointed out.

“I am aware of the opening of hair and nail salons, gyms and soon restaurants by the Governor,” Hines said. “This did not include schools, and school gyms are not to be opened until schools are opened and the GHSA has given the all clear for activities to resume. I have received numerous calls, emails and texts regarding the governor's comments and school gyms are not the kind of gyms he is referring to.

“He is referring to Edge, Gold's, Planet Fitness, etc. The guidance for GHSA sports and activities and training for these activities is that they are all suspended until further notice. Schools are closed, activities are suspended. You will be contacted the moment this changes.”
