New restrictions provide for working hours until 22:00, a mandatory green certificate and up to 50% occupancy of the premises. “Most colleagues in the industry are facing the wall; if they did not boycott the order, it would mean immediate bankruptcy ", Emil Kolarov said. He added the business would call for the resignations of all those who go against the industry with the highest levels of vaccinated personnel and added there would be mass protests.
