Outdoor events without dancing are allowed for up to 1000 people. If the capacity surpasses 250, producing negative COVID tests is required by attendees.

Outside of clubs, mask wearing is no longer mandatory in 35 busy streets and squares in the city, and the midnight-to-5:AM restriction on selling alcohol in pubs and restuarants has been scrapped.
