"We cannot accept to see the bars that score, and to be closed, then that one has the means of enforcing the sanitary measures", launched Fabien Chartol, boss of the legendary venue in paris, in front of the managers of clubs from all over France gathered by the group Paris Night. The prime minister had announced in the night from 19 to 20 June, an acceleration of the déconfinement with the re-opening of the holiday centres, casinos or gambling halls and, from 11 July, of the stages with a maximum number of 5000 spectators. But the government has maintained closed until September, at least, the fairs, exhibitions, trade fairs, nightclubs, and cruise maritime international.

"What you promise, it is a security. You do not promise that there is not a case of Covid in your establishment. What you promise if you reopen, it is that tomorrow the event of a Covid expand everywhere on the territory of private parties", warned Christophe Blanchet, member of parliament for Calvados, himself a former boss of nightlife. "Today, 60 members support you [...] It is thanks to your re-openings that we will be better the virus the night", he added to the applause of the audience, insisting on the aspect of "health" and "control" that would allow a reopening of the nightclubs.

The profession seeks compensation equal to the harm

The patrons of the nightclub have raised their grievances in front of a score of members present, showcasing their "know-how" in safety. The financial aspect was also at the heart of discussions. "The hours are counted. Expected aid", and asked Governed Toutain, the manager of the Missyl, in the Morbihan. "The solutions, that is, either it re-opens, or remains closed, but the State that we shall indemnify to the height of the damage, since it is the only one to stay closed," he explained.

nightclubs employ 43,000 to employees in France, about 100,000, including the employees of external companies, ensuring the safety, in particular. They make an estimated turnover of one billion euros. An inter-ministerial meeting needs to take place this Thursday on the topic.
