The National Association of Restaurants PRO.VAR has sent an urgent request to all city councils to authorise the use of “covered esplanades” to be able to face the winter weather conditions in the fight against covid-19.

PRO.VAR sent urgent requests to all of Portugal’s “308 municipal councils, to allow the use of 'covered esplanades'”, and to the Government to ask it to “reinforce the inspection of catering establishments within the scope of covid-19”, said the association's president, Daniel Serra. He added "It is imperative that solutions are found to ensure that the restaurant operates in maximum security, protecting public health and having, in turn, viability".
