Time passes and the cash desks are always empty for restaurateurs, each day more worried. “It’s confused, we don’t know anything about it, we don’t know if tomorrow we’re going to die or otherwise we will be able to get our heads out of the water“, deplores Thierry Buena Vista, restaurateur in Perpignan (Pyrénées-Orientales). While many were hoping for a clearing up in early December, the Minister of Health Olivier Véran was clear on Tuesday, November 17: restaurants will not be able to reopen at the beginning of December.
Faced with uncertainty, restaurant owners are calling for a little more solidarity. “We don’t ask for help, […] what we are asking for is that we fully compensate for the damage we suffer“, advance Philippe Belot, vice-president of the Haute-Garonne Hospitality Trades and Industries Union. Between two reconfinements, the restaurants were able to reopen, so restaurant owners are wondering why they have to close again.
