From today, April 29th, discos, bars, clubs and nightclubs in Bulgaria are allowed to operate. Visit to them will be carried out under strict measures. Staff are required to wear a face mask, but this requirement does not apply to visitors. Discos and bars will have no required closing time. Disinfectants must be provided at the sites. Also, the use of no more than 50% of their capacity will be allowed, according to the order of the resigned Minister of Health Prof. Kostadin Angelov. This is another step towards easing the restrictive measures against the spread of coronavirus in our country.
Just a reminder that from April 16th visits to gambling halls and casinos in Bulgaria are allowed, using no more than 50% of their capacity. From the same date, the restrictions on the operation of the sites located in shopping centers were lifted. Cultural and entertainment events – festivals, cinemas, theaters, circus performances, stage events, concerts, museums, galleries, libraries, classes in dance, creative and musical arts, using no more than 30% of the capacity of the premises have been allowed since April 12th.
In contrast to this, the Council of Ministers adopted a decision to extend the term of the declared emergency epidemic situation to May 31st, 2021.
