Europe Reins In Nightlife To Curb Covid-19 Surge

BERLIN, GERMANY - SEPTEMBER 30: Berghain club stands closed at night during the coronavirus pandemic on September 30, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. Clubs in Berlin are still closed for indoor reveling as part of measures against the coronavirus. While some, like Berghain, have opened outdoor areas and introduced other means of creating income, all are struggling financially during the pandemic. Across Europe, governments are reining in nightlife with policies that range from curfews to outright closures, hoping to curb Covid-19 with a more targeted approach than the blanket lockdowns of the spring. During the recent surge of Covid-19 cases, people between the ages of 15 and 49 account for about 80% of those testing positive, according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control. Bars and clubs, with their young demographics, close quarters, and flowing alcohol, are seen as ripe environments for spreading coronavirus. Even when allowed to remain open, main venue owners have struggled to remain viable, with curfews and occupancy limits making deep cuts into their revenues. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
