Since the outbreak of the epidemic in March last year, the City of Ljubljana has been striving to mitigate the consequences of the epidemic and measures to contain it. Some of our actions also apply to the economy.
For example, we did not charge rent to tenants of premises owned by the City of Ljubljana during their limited operation, and we exempted caterers from paying fees for the use of public areas on which they set up their catering gardens. Just before the Labour Day holidays, the measures to curb infections with the new coronavirus relaxed in the Central Slovenia Region. And so, last Saturday, for the first time since October last year, Ljubljana's caterers were able to serve their guests in their catering gardens again. As the hospitality sector was one of the industries most affected by the epidemic, the City of Ljubljana decided not to charge caterers a fee for catering gardens in May.
