he Government has authorized the reopening of activities at cinemas, theaters, gyms, casinos, and slot machine halls at 40% capacity in enclosed spaces.

In this sense, Supreme Decree No. 187-2020-PCM approves the expansion of Phase 4 of the Economic Resumption within the framework of the National Health Emergency declared by authorities due to the serious circumstances affecting the life of the nation as a result of COVID-19.

The regulation provides that the permitted capacity may be increased —up to 60% in the case of theaters, for example— if these activities are carried out in open spaces.

Likewise, shopping centers, restaurants, and related businesses shall operate at up to 60% capacity, except bars, pubs, discos, karaoke venues, and related businesses.

The economic activities authorized by this Supreme Decree may resume once the following conditions are met:

1) Businesses shall have a health protocol approved by the Ministry of Health.

2) They must adapt their health measures for workers to the provisions of Ministerial Resolution No. 972-2020-MINSA, which approves the Technical Document called “Guidelines for health surveillance, prevention, and control of workers at risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2.”

According to the regulation, the activities contained in all Phases of the Economic Resumption —including extensions and modifications— are periodically reviewed, taking into account the evolution of epidemiological data.
