Re: Yay - restaurants open!

She was closed down and will be fined and lose her licence..... so if you don't want all restaurants to disappear, maybe don't encourage it.

Re: Yay - restaurants open!

As much as I would love things to be a bit more normal and be able to go to a restaurant or café again this is really not the right way for them to go about things.

She didn't.

All that trouble and strife and do you know what she served up before she was shut down for the day?

Hörnli Ghacktes (minced meat with macroni pasta)

Don't know why she bothered.

The places that took part were taking a stand, knowing the consequences and they some how do have a point.

These places have put up perspect screens, separated tables, set up apps and contract tracing measures, online menus so you dont touch the cards, they have jumped through hoops to follow the rules and make everything safe.

Yet on the trains, trams, buses. If I have a coke or a coffee, I can sip away freely with every man and his dog next to me. All the ski lifts are back up and running, having been in one in Interlaken over new years, yes everyone wore a mask, but we were still packed in like sardines.

And from what I read, these businesses without more financial support or being allowed to open again, will shut anyway in March, so what difference does making a stand, being heard and losing your license make, if you are losing your business anyway.

There is zero consistency in just about any country on the message and rules that are being communicated.

Can anyone tell me why reducing convenient/train station stores and food stores opening hours, giving people less chance to shop for food and intensifying the customers during the opening hours will help reduce the spread?

Bring back normality!!

Scenario A: following the rules and lose your business.

Scenario B: open your business, lose the license (kill the takeaway option and uncertainty about getting a new one in the future), get fined (debt), and become almost unemployable in a salaried job because of the history of legal problems.

The issue here is that cantonal authorities are between a rock and a hard place. If they let the business open and do nothing, it just means there are different classes of people, some people that must respect laws, and another privileged group of people above laws. If they go hard after the small business, they're damaging their own population. Hard decisions.

I guess the way out is to talk about how to live with virus for several years. The dreams about a vaccine (perfect solution) have hindered the discussion on how to live with the virus during an unknown period of time (imperfect and good enough solution). So, don't kill the good in the name of perfect.

PS. don't kill the good (takeaway) in the name of perfect (full occupation of tables) also applies to restaurants.

PS#2 : Thinking a bit about business, is there a service where a restaurant cook stops by Prodega, brings the ingredients to your home, cooks and serves there? Any current law against this? I've seen the hairdresser visit my neighbors, it's curious how he carries all his stuff in a wheeled box.
