DAWSON CREEK -- A Fort St. John gym has been issued a closure order from Northern Health.

Prevail Athletics has been issued an order to close.

All gyms in the province were ordered to close on December 22 but Northern Health says Prevail Athletics remained open.

Prevail Athletics posted on Facebook saying they tried to stay open for as long as possible but due t the notice, they will be closed until further notice.

“In the case of gyms, if public health receives a concern and investigates that and uncovers evidence of a facility continuing to permit the activities that aren't allowed under enforcement, they can take action,” says Eryn Collins, Northern Health.

Another gym in Fort St. John called The Gym, also received a closure notice after defying public health orders.
