Bucharest officially entered the red scenario (morbidity over 3 per 1,000 inhabitants) on September 25th, which led to the introduction of some restrictions. Indoor restaurants and cafes, as well as gambling halls can operate with 50 percent of their capacity, and bars, clubs and discos - with up to 30 percent. Cinemas, theaters and concert halls can also fill no more than half of their seats. Up to 200 people can attend private events such as weddings, baptisms, etc., up to 150 people can participate in conferences, and up to 100 people can attend rallies and demonstrations.
