The Junta of Andalucia has confirmed that bars and restaurants can serve up to a maximum capacity of 75 per cent inside their establishments, and up to 100 per cent capacity on terraces, from this Sunday. However, hospitality venue owners must ensure that a distance of one and a half metres between tables is maintained. The Junta has also imposed a maximum table occupancy of 25 people.
Commenting on the relaxed rules, Andalucia’s President Juanma Moreno, stated: “On Sunday we start the challenge of gradually recovering old habits that Covid-19 forced us to change.” Nevertheless, he insisted that the region’s Covid-19 health situation will be constantly reviewed, in case restrictions need to be tightened again. He asked Andalucians to “remain cautious and continue to be responsible, as an example for all of Spain,” as it has been throughout these past months amid the lockdown.
The further relaxing of restrictions will provide a much-needed boost for the hospitality industry, which suffered huge losses during the lockdown, as reported.
