  • Nightclubs in Catalonia, Spain, are set to reopen. Clubs are expected to welcome guests indoors from October 8th, with the government still finalising regulations, according to elDiario.es. Venues hosting over 10,000 guests will be allowed to accommodate up to 60 percent of their capacity. Covid-19 passes will be required for entry, with the government set to roll out an app, Catalan News reports. The app will show that the holder has either completed the full vaccination process, tested negative for Covid-19 or has recovered from the virus in the past six months. Currently, nightclubs and venues in Catalonia can host guests until 3 AM, but only outdoors. A brief reopening of indoor spaces at the end of June led to a surge in cases and a swift U-turn by legislative bodies. The news comes after it was announced that nightclubs in Ibiza will likely reopen on the same date, albeit with more stringent restrictions in place. Photo: Erwan Hesry
