Many of you have asked me today if we will follow the measures that are on Mainland. They have an 11pm curfew on New year’s eve, with everything closing at 10.30 pm, and then on the first 3 days of the year places will close at 1pm.

I don’t think we will have anything like this, as the Continente is in a much worse state, but new restrictions are going to be announced for us and we will wait and see what is said.
