That is correct. Starting from February 22, 2021 only individual activities or individual training are allowed, including with an instructor or a partner, and a 2-metre distance must be kept with other persons. Several individual activities can take place in one room but it must be ensured that the occupancy of the room does not exceed 50% and the number of participants is not more than 200.

No. The purpose of all of the restrictions is to reduce close contact between people, which is why the main theme of the latest restrictions is the prohibition of group activities. Contact activities may be conducted individually with an instructor or online. Holding organised group workout classes is prohibited. A workout class that has an instructor leading more than one instructee and that starts at the same time in the same place is a group workout class.

Because there exist some individual activities that are performed on one's own in a very large space (such as a sports hall), the order also calls for additional compliance with the 2 + 2 rule, the 50% capacity requirement in indoor spaces, and the 200 person limit. The latter was added because no upper limit had previously been established regarding the number of people performing activities subject to the 2 + 2 rule in a single large indoor space.
