Massachusetts is among the US states hit hardest by the coronavirus. It has reported more than 100,000 cases and 7,770 deaths, according to The Guardian.

The state's lockdown means that gatherings of more than 10 people are not allowed and only essential businesses can open, according to The Wall Street Journal. People are meant to leave the house only for some permitted work, healthcare, worship, shopping and outdoor activities.

The state's reopening plan will only let gyms start up again no earlier than June 29, according to The Boston Globe.

Worcester County Judge Susan E. Sullivan on Tuesday issued an order of contempt to the gym, on top of 17 earlier citations, MassLive reported.

In her order she wrote that the refusal to comply "is not only a blatant disregard for the court and its authority but also threatens the spread of COVID-19 further within the town and the commonwealth," according to MassLive.
