JUANMA MORENO: Makes reference to the difficulties the nightlife sector has had through lockdown

The vice president, Juan Marin, said it’s likely that there will be a series of new restrictions put in place on nightlife in the region, and said ‘Andalucia is ready for a second wave, but we shouldn’t have to confine ourselves because of irresponsible people,’ according to Ideal.

Moreno, said in his speech last Thursday, that they are looking for a ‘total ban’ on botellones, as well as looking to put more restrictions on indoor nightlife venues, such as setting stricter shutting hours and making more, ‘orderly leisure areas outdoors.’

The president made reference to the sensitivity of putting restrictions on such a prominent sector, that is nightlife, and said how it will be done with ‘refinement’ as this sector has ‘had a very difficult time these last four months.’

Marin also discussed the possibility of restrictions on mobility, as he stated, depending on the decision of the committee of experts, precautions might be taken as ‘the debauchery of some cannot be allowed to become a problem for society.’
