BarcelonaNightlife business association Fecasarm has proposed a pilot test with antigen test for the reopening of nightclubs, according to the programme Planta baixa on TV3. The purpose is to distribute 4,000 people in 10 nightclubs in Barcelona on Friday May 21. As in the concert of Love of Lesbian at the Palau Sant Jordi, the public will have to take an antigen test on the same day of the pilot test. Once in the club, which would open without time restrictions, everyone would wear a mask. In addition, the premises will have to ensure proper ventilation.

Fecasarm wants to send the proposal to the business department this Thursday, and on Monday will meet Barcelona City Council to seek its support.

The activity of the nightclubs has been one of the most affected by the pandemic, and their schedule for reopening remains mired in uncertainty. Even so, some tests have been carried out, such as the Mercè Electrònica in Girona, for 250 people, as well as other larger experiments in the United Kingdom.
