“Brake” on hotel New Year’s Eve – The operation of their restaurants will be banned on the eve of holidays | HELLAS

The hotel restaurants will remain closed during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

This problem was of great concern to the government and the leadership of the Ministry of Development and Investment, following the suggestions of experts who warned of the danger of dispersal in hotels. As of yesterday, the iefimerida.gr had previously announced that the ban on the operation of hotel restaurants and for those staying in them is being considered.


All the measures for the holidays – New Year’s Eve with … limit, shops with click away and drive through – What applies to travel

The Deputy Minister of Development Nikos Papathanasis, speaking earlier on OPEN TV, announced that “New Year’s Eve” in hotels will be banned and that the possibility of operating their restaurants will not be allowed, both on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. In addition to the scientists, there were also complaints from representatives of the catering industry, who claimed that they were treated more unfavorably.

It is recalled that the latest Government Gazette for the measures for the coronavirus (see here the last measures) provided that the restaurants, bars and cafes of hotels could continue to operate, to serve exclusively the residents in them. Nevertheless, this “window” allowed hotels to host New Year’s Eve dinners – something some businesses advertised.
