From Monday 22 June, the regulation will be amended to allow catering establishments to be open from 04:00 and to close no later than 02:00.

Alcohol dispensing can be started no earlier than 09:00 and must be stopped no later than 01:00.

In addition to this, buffet tables are allowed again. Today is the first day in a long time when guests have access to a lunch buffet. Buffets were banned in early April to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

As of Monday, three-quarters of the number of persons in accordance with the liquor license or building plan may be housed in the interior or part of the catering establishment. In the past, the restriction has been half the normal number of customers.

All restrictions on catering businesses will be lifted in line with government policy on July 13th.

After this date, however, the old policy that all guests should have their own seat remains.
