From midnight on October 23, visits to discos, nightclubs and indoor and outdoor entertainment establishments are allowed only when 1 person has at least 2 square meters of total space. The measure has been announced by the Minister of Health Kostadin Angelov after a meeting with the associations of public establishments, BGNES reported.

We reduce the capacity of the restaurants and the attendance by half. The current order is one person per 1 square meter. In this way, we will have enough distance between the visitors to interrupt the epidemic route of transmission of the virus, Minister Angelov explained. Richard Alibegov of the Association of Restaurants said he was pleased with the measure because the industry would not be able to withstand another restaurant closure.
