Hotel owners, especially small family hotels as well as restaurants they ask why they can’t work and when will they be able to? They also ask why the restaurant is allowed to operate only for users of accommodation facilities? Who will come to us anyway? and emphasize how willing they are to adhere to all measures, just so they can work. The UGP examined what their members think about how quickly it is necessary to react and relax some measures. The largest segment is looking for reasonable security measures to open a business. Also, this survey further reflects the reality of Croatian entrepreneurs who have to weigh between their health and the risk to which they are exposed, the sustainability of their business and their financial future, so the largest segment of 87% of entrepreneurs is willing to work out of necessity. To the question: When to relax measures and open closed shops and bars? – More than 78% of entrepreneurs believe that it should be opened as soon as possible, but with reasonable security measures. Event agencies, travel agencies, companies from the wedding sector, cultural events they wonder why masses are allowed and weddings and other events are not allowed? As a measure, they point out that before registration, participants can have their temperature measured, given masks and gloves. Install disinfectants at the entrances and in the hall Or, if that is not an option – expect some approximate date on which they can fictitiously count – June, July, September, the end of the year, next year. “Anything that can be planned because this is insane. They have completely forgotten one branch of the economy”Entrepreneurs point out. Many traders also have additional questions Do you expect the exact prescribed conditions for opening stores for Monday? Will the fact be taken into account that not all stores are self-service, and that the barrier at the point of payment does not reduce the contact between customers and sellers? Following the relaxation plan announced yesterday, and in anticipation of the CNIPH Ordinance, the Voice of Entrepreneurs Association (UGP) brings the opinions of entrepreneurs and craftsmen, as well as a number of open issues. Very close to them are the additional 9% who also believe that the relaxation of the measure is necessary as soon as possible, but they are even more cautious, so they are still looking for strict security measures. Almost 8% of them state that safety is still in the first place, and that everything else can wait. About 3% of those who think that this year was lost to generate income have resigned. “Gentlemen in the Government, this must not be done, it is high time to organize, start giving clear and coordinated measures and instructions, and we ask you – why did you not accept our proposal to form an economic crisis headquarters, as a central place for implementation of all measures and adjustments? and control of the same? Instead of coordinated measures, you now have a mess among ministries, counties, cities, the CNIPH, the CZ Crisis Staff, the inspectorate and many other public bodies”Concludes Bujas. The UGP emphasizes that from the beginning they proposed to the Government that seasonal craftsmen and workers enter the package of Measures, if necessary on a monthly basis. “Events, driving schools, restaurants within the hotel and many others have been completely forgotten in the opening measures, what will happen to them? I would additionally emphasize that at yesterday’s Government session, the proposal to abolish the forced membership fee of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and the Croatian Chamber of Commerce was smoothly rejected, we wonder why such an imposition is still allowed, why such coercion is done in our society? The same question applies to all parafiscal levies, the association Glas Poduzetnika demands the immediate abolition of all parafiscal levies.” The mode of operation in all service industries, shopping malls, office operations is unclear, and it is unknown when this will be clarified. There is also no clear information on working hours. It is also unclear whether and what impact the COVID score announced by FINA will have on the allocation of CES grants. Below is an overview of issues related to individual business segments collected from our members, point out the UGP. UGP survey: More than 78% of entrepreneurs believe that it should be opened as soon as possible, but with reasonable security measures The inconsistency, incoordination and the fact that it is always late with the implementing regulations, and not late with repressive measures, as was the case with the recent attack of inspectors on catering facilities, said Hrvoje Bujas, President of Glas Poduzetnika, adding: They also believe that gathering up to ten people is not in the category of public gathering at all, ie they expect some guidelines for opening options for congresses, conferences and seminars. Spa they also ask what is wrong with us? Are people allowed to swim in thermal pools? Seasonal artisans are not fall into any measures, nor are they mentioned, and wonder where in that story are those who have seasonal crafts and firms, shops and restaurants? What applies to them? “They are not in a position to sit at home and receive a salary like some other segments of society, but it is clear to them that they have to fight and seize every opportunity. In addition, they fully accept and follow all measures proposed by epidemiologists and health professionals. Let’s hope that the authorities will listen to their requests and recommendations”Conclude from UGP.
Friday, following a hearing in which both pop star Britney Spears and her parents spoke, a judge ordered an expert evaluation in the conservatorship that for 11 years has put much of the 37-year-old singer’s life in the control of her father.Conservatorship, known in many states as guardianship, is an involuntary status reserved for people incapacitated and unable to make decisions for themselves.The court was behind closed doors meaning no one knows what exactly was said at the hearing.However, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny wrote in an order afterward that all had agreed on a so-called 730 expert evaluation, a process usually used to determine the mental health and competence of a parent in a divorce case.It is unclear who would be examined, and whether it would relate to Spears’ relationship to her two sons or her parents’ oversight of her.Kevin Federline,Spears’ ex-husband, has custody of their two sons, 13-year-old Sean and 12-year-old Jayden, who have frequent visits with their mother.On Wednesday, a judge granted Spears a temporary restraining order against Sam Lutfi, a man who once claimed to be her manager and has been in legal fights with her family for a decade.Spears alleged that Lutfi had been sending harassing and threatening texts to Spears’ family, disparaging them on social media and seeking to undermine her conservatorship.A judge ordered the 44-year-old Lutfi to stay at least 200 yards from Spears and her family.
