“We are not waiting any longer. I spoke with the owners of many restaurants in Legionowo today. Everyone is fed up, everyone has families and everyone has the right to work. We have employees for whom we are responsible. ”
U Trzech Braci, a restaurant in the center of Cieszyn, opened on January 8.
"This means you can visit us again and eat in the restaurant like a normal person" - the owners then wrote on Facebook.
Inspectors, accompanied by police officers, came to the restaurant the next day.
