BELLMAWR, N.J. (AP) — The owners of a gym in southern New Jersey have again been cited for reopening the business in defiance of a state order that shutdown nonessential businesses to help stem the spread of the coronavirus. Bellmawr police issued the latest summonses to the Atilis Gym shortly after it opened its doors on Tuesday. Several supporters jeered as the officers made the announcement outside the gym in a scene similar to what had occurred when the business reopened on Monday. The gym’s owners have said the decision to resume operations at the members-only facility was not about financial gain, but rather a question of Constitutional rights.
