Large-scale joint inspections by 5 institutions on the first day (27.01) of the introduction of evening hours and limited work capacity of restaurants showed that establishments refuse to comply with the measures. Despite the fines over violation of the order, varying between 150 and 500 euros for an individual and between 250 and 1,000 euro for a legal entity, the owners of restaurants plan to boycott the order of the Minister of Health. Despite warnings of mass inspections and fines, they said they would continue to work as usual.
