PLANS are being made to guarantee social distancing on Albir beach once this reopens.
If Alfaz progresses to Phase Three of the central government’s de-escalation programme, sunbathing and swimming should recommence on June 8, the town hall explained.
Future strategies were discussed in a video call by the town hall’s Beaches department, the municipal biologist, a representative from the contracted life-saving service,  and the beach-bed concessionary.
The latter described plans to reorganise the layout of the sun-loungers as well as measures that included specific points to access the beach dependent on whether beachgoers plan to use the public space or hire a sunbed.
These will have to be disinfected after each use and also under discussion was the method and products that would be used to in carrying this out.
