Tomorrow ends the first stage of the severe restrictions adopted by the Government from the wave of coronavirus cases, both nationally and in Tucumán. However, the DNU signed by the president Alberto Fernandez establishes that this “Phase 1” will be in force again during the next weekend, of June 5 and 6. Faced with this scenario, the owners of bars and restaurants in the province have a decision made.

“We have no other option but to work, including the weekend of restrictions,” he said. Constance Bauque, head of the Chamber of Gastronomic Activities of Tucumán, in dialogue with

This productive sector, like the businesses of items considered “non-essential” by the national DNU, had led a fiery protest last weekend, when the nine days of prohibition of activities began to govern due to the health crisis that unleashed the pandemic.

As it could be seen in the streets of Tucumán, a good part of the owners of bars and restaurants decided not to comply with the regulations under two arguments: that the contagion of covid-19 does not occur in those establishments, and that the economic situation that drags the sector since 2020 is truly critical.

However, this position led to different police operations in the province, which led to arrests and the opening of files in the provincial courts.

Although there are still no official confirmations, it is expected that on Monday the restriction scheme that was in force prior to the week that ends will be resumed. What is the expectation of the gastronomic sector of Tucumán?

“We are going to maintain the position of opening. Not only us, this is a position that is being endorsed by many other provinces and cities of the country with which we are in contact, such as Córdoba, Province of Buenos Aires and Mar del Plata”, indicated Bauque.

The head of the Chamber of Gastronomic Activities of Tucumán explained that until now there has not been a call from the provincial authorities to dialogue with the sector. “Yesterday we were meeting with the mayor (Mariano) Campero, and promised to accompany us through a (municipal) decree so that, in case of new restrictions, we can work in Yerba Buena, “he remarked.

In any case, he insisted that the businessmen in this area were not listened to by the provincial authorities. “Decisions are made without calling the sector,” he lamented.

In this sense, Bauque considered that, if the dialogue was opened, the steps to be followed could be analyzed together.

“Our issue is economic. As long as we can work, there is no more to talk about. If they prohibit us from working, the expectation is that they will call us to see how we can solve the economic issue, which is desperate. The truth is that we are sitting on top of it. of a powder keg with a burning cigarette. People in the sector are angry because decisions are made without summoning us. In addition, there is a lot of uncertainty. In gastronomy you have to have predictability to be able to decide on the company of products for sale and other issues. With last-minute decisions, the damage that is done is much deeper, “he analyzed.
