The government of Uganda, through the Minister of Health, Jane Ruth Aceng, earlier November announced it had eased restrictions on mass gatherings, political rallies, cinemas, casinos, gyms, massage parlors, and mobile markets. This is part of the phased lifting of the COVID19 lockdown. The lifting of the restriction is in tandem with adherence to the laid out standard operating procedures (SOPs).
This move by the government was welcomed with open arms by service providers who are now reopening their businesses almost seven months since the government shut down the economy by ordering a ban on operations of non-essential services as a way of stopping the spread of COVID19. Business like gyms, saunas and massage parlors are now feeling a fresh breath of now that they can operate.
At Speke Resort and Conference Centre in Munyonyo, Ajit Singh, a manager, welcomed the move and said that they will continue to observe the SOPs and health guidelines put in place by the ministry of health as a way of protecting their customers. “Our wellness centre has officially re-opened, be sure to fit in some fitness time so you can stay sharp,” Ajit said.
“The swimming pool and gym officially opened to the public on the 14th November and we are observing the SOPs and Health guidelines. At Speke Resort, we believe that an active healthy mind is key to maintaining a positive approach to life. We want our guests to come and enjoy a range of outdoor health and fitness activities at the Resort,” Ajit added.
The Speke Resort Wellness Centre has a gym, an Olympic size swimming pool, the spa, a fitness centre, a sports centre (two glass-backed squash courts) and kids activities. The gym caters to people of all ages and fitness levels, whether you are extremely athletic or just need a little exercise. You can stay in shape and keep fit with their fitness classes, running tracks and fully equipped gym. There’s something for everybody.
