Food facilities and bars will be allowed to work in Georgia until 23:00 instead of 22:00, announces Chief of the Operational Staff of the Interagency Coordination Council Giorgi Gibradze.

The Georgian government lifted several coronavirus restrictions such as curfew and wearing facemasks outdoors in late June after which the number of daily Covid-19 cases began rising in July. However restrictions remained in force for restaurants and food facilities in general which could operate until 00:00. 

Later the government decided to impose other restrictions between August 14 and September 4 again to curb the spread of coronavirus. That time food facilities were allowed to work until 23:00 and in several days the government reduced the time by one hour, until 22:00.

Georgia has reported 2,800 new cases of coronavirus, 1,485 recoveries and 42 deaths in the past 24 hours. The positivity rate has gone up to 8.31% of tested individuals for Covid-19 as of October 4 in comparison to 5.51% of the last two weeks.
