Default Bar/Restaurant Closures - Coronavirus

Hola!

It’s in the news back here in rainy England that Spain is closing all bars and restaurants due to Coronavirus.

Are any of you luck ones already out there aware of anything actually happening or is it just hysteria in the uk press?

Thanks,

Andy

A few have closed, those that remain open were told yesterday they must close by midnight every night.

That said, things are changing very quickly and i suspect they will all have to close completely very soon. I fear many will never re-open .

Total lock down as of now . Some restaurants are saying they will carry on but only doing takeaways.

I usually try to be positive but i fear many of our favourite places will not survive this, my heart breaks for my many friends who have served us so well over the years, also i am really concerned for those who live alone and their only human contact is when they pop out for a drink/coffee or lunch/dinner.

The consequences on these vulnerable people are very scary, God forbid but i see a rise in the suicide rate, hope i am wrong and sorry for being gloomy but that's how i feel tonight .

Take care my friends .

My thoughts exactly Sparky - I feel so sorry for all the restaurants and bars who rely on our visits and now are powerless 😢. And how the isolation will affect people. And this thing jus seems to have escalated so quickly. Stay safe.

I feel the same. The effect of tourism changes and now this will leave local businesses on their knees. I hope it is not as bad as fear.

Our daughter , who lives in Barcelona, was sent home with her desk top computer in a taxi, and told to work from home. We were there for four day's last week, before the increased lockdown measures were put in place. It should have been this week, but the flights were cheaper last week,otherwise we may have been her lodgers for the foreseeable !
