Catalonia Plans To Allow The Opening Of Restaurants At Night Within Fifteen Days And Relax The Curfew.

The Regional Minister of the Presidency and spokesperson for the Catalonian Government, Meritxell Budó, now believes it is time to put on the table the possibility of reopening bars and restaurants in the evening hours to be able to offer meals to diners.

In an interview with ‘Radio 4 y La 2’, Budó said that “now is the time to give ‘air’ to people and businesses.” According to the spokesperson for the Executive, the de-escalation must be planned within the next 15 days- the restoration schedule is one of the main issues to be discussed.

If all is agreed then this could lead to extending the curfew until 11 pm in order to be able to dine out comfortably. Budó assumes that in 15 days mobility between regions will not decline any further, “if there is not a disaster”, but he ruled out that nightlife can be started back up, in another blow to the beleaguered industry.

The local government now has 15 days ‘breather’ before regulations come into force this Monday to plan how the de-escalation can be advanced. With March 29 quickly approaching, the beginning of Holy Week, Budó proposes to assess measures such as lengthening the restaurant hours among other things.

Budó also believes that, when the time comes, it is necessary to work “in what way” this sector (nightlife) can be reopened and pointed to the possibility that the public may have to do some kind of test to attend certain kinds of shows.

How it started.

The Spanish region of Catalonia, which included the city of Barcelona, ordered bars and restaurants to close for 15 days on October 14, 2020, and also limited the numbers of people allowed in shops to try to curb a surge in coronavirus cases.

With close to 900,000 registered cases and more than 33,000 deaths, Spain became the pandemic’s hotspot in Western Europe. The capital Madrid and nearby suburbs were put on partial lockdown at the same time.
