REDDING, Calif.-As we move deeper into stage two of reopening there are some businesses opening their doors before getting the go ahead from the state.


Charlie Hauser owns Shasta Athletic Club in Redding. After two months of being closed, his gym is back open.


“Based on the science and the responses we were seeing in the community, I felt our risk was beginning to subside,” says Hauser.


In California, gyms are not allowed to reopen until stage three and even though the state hasn’t put out guidelines for them to follow, Hauser tells Action News Now he’s taking extra steps to make sure his employees and clients are safe.


“We do have sneeze guards, our employees and staff are wearing masks. Our classes haven’t opened yet, our childcare hasn’t opened yet and we’ve put other restrictions into play above and beyond anything we’ve seen,” says Hauser.


The Shasta Athletic Club isn’t the only place opening before getting the go ahead. Amusement parks are not supposed to be open yet, but even so Waterworks Park plans to reopen tomorrow.


Public health encouraging people not to go to the park. Action News Now spoke to people who said as long as safety guidelines are in place, they have no problem taking their children there.


“Between the heat and trying to practice social distancing, washing our hand a lot, I think I would feel comfortable going at this point,” says Rosyln Wilkinson, who was visiting from Sacramento.


Public health stressing that places like gyms and amusement parks are not supposed to open until stage three.


Shasta county law enforcement has said when it comes to businesses defying the state’s orders, they are taking an “educational approach” and working with businesses.
