As the rate of vaccination advances in the country, the Executive began to make flexible restrictive measures, in order to contribute to the economic reactivation of the country.
Given that all regions are classified as moderate risk, the Executive decided that restaurants that have a customer service area greater than or equal to 200 square meters —Including the lounge, the bar area and the waiting room— will be able to function with 100% of their allowed capacity.
“It does not make sense – if they are very large spaces, many of them outdoors – that there is a capacity restriction at this time when the level of risk is moderate ”, announced the Minister of Health, Hernando Cevallos. The official specified, however, that gastronomic businesses that have an area of less than 200 square meters will continue to operate with a maximum capacity of 60%.
In both cases, restaurants must continue to respect current sanitary protocols, in order to avoid crowds in these places, like the distancing between tables, etcetera.
For his part, the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), Roberto Sánchez, pointed out that A financing of S / 11 million was approved to the artisan associations of Peru.
“We are talking about a competitive promotion, of business plans in which an artisan, natural person with a business or an organization could award direct support of S / 5,000 to an eventuality, ″ said Sánchez.
On the other hand, the head of the sector announced that his office is working on the drafting of a emergency decree that will link a program that will allow the reactivation of employment in tourism. One of these measures will be the expansion of the program Tourism Undertakes, that will have resources of up to S / 32 million to finance the business plans of the sector.
