California gym refuses to shut down despite governor’s orders and rising COVID-19 cases

A gym in California has refused to shut down, in defiance of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders in the wake of rising coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.

The owner of Fitness Mania in the city of Riverside has vowed to keep the gym open, saying the business is operating “lawfully” and that any orders by the governor “are nothing more than suggestions.”

Newsom recently reversed the state’s reopening plan and mandated that many indoor businesses would have to close.

In certain counties, including Riverside, where Fitness Mania is located, Newsom ordered fitness centers shut down unless they can be modified to operate outside.

    I wish that all business owners had this kind of courage to stand up to the would-be dictator. If they all joined in, there would be nothing Adolf Newsom could due about it.
