Entrepreneurs reject the prohibition to consume standing in bars and nightclubs
The hotel management, grouped in the HoyTú association, yesterday accused the regional government of “selling smoke” with the opening “at half gas” of the bars and dance floors. “It is frustrating to see that the announcement that regional president López Miras has made about the new Covid measures only seeks to achieve headlines in the newspapers, it does not provide effective solutions,” lamented Jesús Jiménez, president of HoyTú. “It makes no sense to open the bars sitting down, or the dance floors without being able to consume yourself on them. Many decisions of the Covid committee are inexplicable. Society goes on one side and the committee on the other, it is practically impossible for people to comply with the regulations, “he denounced.
The hoteliers lamented that the Region of Murcia is “the most restrictive in Spain”, especially in relation to
any surrounding province. “For example, in Andalusia you can eat standing up, dance with consumption and the bars have been open for more than a month,” said Jesús Jiménez. The employer requested “political courage” to make decisions.
