The Andalusian Board of Ministers has approved measures concerning night bars etc earlier this morning.
Discotheques and night clubs must keep a register of their customers so that they can quickly be located in the case of possible contagion.
Furthermore, the maximum capacity has been reduced from 75% to 60% in interiors.
But it is not just night-life establishments because in restaurants the maximum number of diners at a table has been halved from 25 down to 12.
Government Spokesperson, Elías Bendodo, was given the task of communicating these changes at the press call after a board meeting that included the eight mayors belonging to the provincial capital cities.
Concerning discotheques (80s terminology in the UK replaced by ‘clubs’ as in clubbing) the register’s requirement means that customers either will have to make a reservation beforehand or give their names, addresses etc at the door.
Once inside, customers cannot be served at the bar but at a table, where only a maximum of 12 people can sit; i.e., the same as restaurants.
Readers will remember that botellones (street bottle parties) have been banned from one side of Andalucia to the other.
Another measure contemplated was to bring forward the closing times of night bars from 07.00h to 05.00h, but this has not been confirmed officially – we are waiting for the BOJA to be published to confirm this.
