Lockdown measures eased throughout Europe over the course of summer 2021
Sep 15, 2021
As the most restrictive measures affecting the hospitality sector were largely lifted across Europe over the course of summer, most hospitality establishments, with the notable exception of nightclubs, were able to cater for guests both within their premises and on terraces.
The most notable trend in Europe was the introduction of Covid or ‘green’ certificates which enable governments to develop domestic and travel-related measures based on verifiable information regarding an individual’s vaccination, recovery or infection status. However European countries apply requirements very differently: while requiring ‘green’ certificates for entry to cultural venues or the interior of restaurants is now commonplace, other countries have adopted a stricter approach, such as France, where a Covid pass is required to access most types of establishments.
