The governor of Ceará, Camilo Santana (PT), met this Wednesday, 25th, with the president of the Brazilian Association of Bars and Restaurants in Ceará (Abrasel-CE), Taiene Righetto, and director Daiana Fernandes. Through social networks, Camilo stated that, at the time, there was a discussion about the recovery of the economy and the State’s support for the sector, which he highlights was one of the biggest affected by the pandemic.

The chief secretary of the Civil House, Chagas Vieira, also participated in the meeting. “We are still discussing new partnerships between the Government of Ceará and Abrasel-CE”, said the governor.

One of the few changes in the new decree, which took effect on Monday, 23, was the extension of the opening hours of restaurants. The extension of the hours was among the main demands of the sector.

The new rules already represent advances for the food industry outside the home, since the segment was the only one to have flexible hours. With the update, restaurants, bars and beach huts had extended opening hours until midnight. However, establishments must still operate 50% of capacity.
