Restrictions that allow them to open only on busy days... And condense midweek guests into weekend days too? Seems odd.Ugh, that looks disgusting Maybe the people that run Energylandia know something the general public don't about some upcoming restrictions!
It was only a flippant comment but if you want to analyse it, it could be that they know more serious restrictions are coming in which will result in a lot less people being able to visit and so they've decided to close on quieter days to reduce costs.Restrictions that allow them to open only on busy days...

But that would just reduce your potential gate further, whereas midweeks could have been fully booked with restricted numbers at the weekend causing spikes in demand, just like the UK.It was only a flippant comment but if you want to analyse it, it could be that they know more serious restrictions are coming in which will result in a lot less people being able to visit and so they've decided to close on quieter days to reduce costs.
That graph showing Europe is a little missleading as it doesn’t show clearly enough that the countries who’ve already had a large peak are not the ones having a significant second peak...@Matt N in relation to your previous question regarding the so called “second wave”, this graph shows us how cases are starting to surge again across Europe after lockdowns were eased.

Gives us a rough idea of where we currently sit in comparison to the peak of the first wave back in March-April. Bear in mind though testing across Europe was seriously poor in March-April time and is now much improved meaning that the first peak is not representative of how many cases there actually were given only hospitalised cases were recorded, the new daily numbers are much more accurate due to targeted testing; but still not everyone will be being picked up, especially asymptomatic spreaders.
In unfortunate news, Spain’s weekly hospitalisations are at 1400 this week, double last weeks figure. Cases in germany, Poland and Italy are also starting to surge too with the rest of Europe. UK has seen steadily increasing figures over the past few weeks, the real test for us will be getting schools open without outbreaks.
No doubt easing lockdowns and reopening borders has caused cases to start spiking again. Makes you wonder if the UK had gone for an elimination strategy like New Zealand we could all be living like normal right now for the most part bar international travel. What New Zealand are aiming for and have been achieving I think is an incredibly sensible strategy- eliminate covid and supply financial support to the travel industry, compared to the uk and Europe who are having to provide financial support to every industry as everything is operating with reduced staffing right now.
Here is an update of how we are looking in the UK for cases right now:

Here you can see the 7 day case rate and daily movements for countries across the EU. UK sits today at 12.1, which isn't bad yet, but as you say an increase of over 1500 cases yesterday indicates cases are on the rise again. The real issues are getting schools back on Monday and people starting to meet indoors rather than outdoors like you say. I am still sticking to government guidelines that only 2 households should meet indoors, but as more and more people break these rules cases are at a real risk of spiking again.Over 1500 cases in the UK yesterday...
Probably just an anomaly, but with colder, wetter, weather consistently forcing people indoors over the last few weeks I’ll be watching carefully over the next few days for rapid growth in areas that haven’t had many cases :/
