BENIDORM town hall closed its doors on Monday evening after an employee tested positive for Covid-19.

“From today and until further notice all municipal activity is suspended in the central building,” Benidorm’s mayor Toni Perez announced.

“All municipal employees, as well as any person who habitually works in these installations, will be carrying out the self-protection and self-isolation procedures required in mild cases.”

Quoting national and regional requirements during the State of Emergency, the mayor’s communique explained that the situation was one of “sporadic contact in the workplace” and did not require more stringent measures.

During the time that Benidorm central town hall building is closed, the public will be able to contact municipal services via its website or the Administrative Extension offices located elsewhere in Benidorm.
