The Catalonian government has ordered all discotheques and nightclubs throughout the region to close from this Saturday to curb soaring infections.
Nightlife ordered shut
The Generalitat has ordered the closure to the public of discotheques, dance halls and party rooms that incorporate shows throughout Catalonia to try to stop the transmission of the coronavirus.
Musical activities with dance floors or spaces outside the establishments are also suspended throughout Catalonia- gambling halls, casinos and bingo halls are obliged to close at eleven at night. The duration of the measures is set to last at least 15 days.
In addition, in the municipalities where the highest number of COVID-19 infections have been detected in recent days, the closing hours will be reduced to midnight for restaurants, bars, terraces, beach bars and music bars. Among these municipalities are Barcelona and its metropolitan area, numerous towns in Lleida and some in Girona such as Figueres.
The government also issued a stern warning to all the areas affected- DO NOT TRY TO BYPASS THE RESTRICTIONS- massive fines and possible criminal convictions are being touted as a deterrent, such is the seriousness of the situation.
