Gyms remain closed after being told to open up to the public
School gymnasiums in Futian District were ordered to remain open to the public during the summer vacation but some remained closed claiming they were doing repairs or renovations during summer vacation because that is the only time no one is using the gymnasiums.
Of the 69 schools in the district 35 schools are closed for renovations, the other 34 schools are open to the residents to use their gyms. Still some residents claim that out of the 34 schools, some still refuse to open their gymnasiums claiming that they have receive orders not to open.
It was routine for some school to carry out repairs and renovations during summer months, school representatives said that they will announce reopening times as soon as possible and those refused to open their gyms to the public will be punished, since according to the state regulations school gyms should be open to the public free of charge and are subsidized by the city government.
