THE lastest announcements from the Junta de Andalucia against Covid this Christmas have brought both more frustrations but also a small sigh of relief.
From Saturday, December 12 to Thursday 17 bars and restaurants will continue to struggle with a 6pm closure, at a time when people are trying to drum up some festive spirit socialising plays a huge part.
From December 18 to January 10, bar and restaurants can open with extended hours, 6am – 6pm / 8pm – 10.30pm, so does this make the new siesta 6pm – 8pm?
According to the president, the early evening closure is due to experts claiming these are the hours at which we are most relaxed.
Whilst it may be an inconvenience, it does give restaurants the option to offer breakfast, lunch and finally, dinner, which will no doubt see a huge increase in revenue especially for the smaller, independent businesses.
