EVEN before the coronavirus state of alarm restrictions on movements came into force on Monday morning, some Costa Almeria councils were loudly urging people not to go out.
Vans loaded with loud speakers started going round the streets of Vera Playa on Friday afternoon blaring out the message, “In the face of the exceptional emergency situation due to the coronavirus crisis, Vera council recommends all residents stay at home, avoiding unnecessary movements and possible risk contacts with affected people.”
The message calls for residents to show “responsibility” and “collaboration.”
It also includes the Junta de Andalucia coronavirus information line number 955 545 060.
By Saturday afternoon a similar message in both Spanish and English was being put out from a vehicle doing the rounds in Mojacar Playa.
