The Serbian government’s pandemic response team has decided to allow cafes and restaurants to open indoors as of Friday, May 7.
Response team member Dr Branislav Tiodorovic said that the hospitality industry would be allowed to serve customers indoors but would have to abide by the recommended epidemiological measures which include no more than 50 percent of capacities filled and keeping at least a 1.5-metre-distance between customers. Also, no music is allowed at catering establishments.
At present, cafes and restaurants are allowed to serve customers outdoors.
Earlier on Thursday, epidemiologist Dr Predrag Kon said that the medical experts in the response team recommended keeping the ban on opening indoor facilities after May 15. He also said that the economic pressure lifting the ban was huge.
