The Covid-19 Monitoring Committee in the Region of Murcia has agreed for a limit to be placed on social gatherings within the Murcian region.

PUBLIC and private gatherings are both set to be affected following the announcement, which was made following a heightened worry and concern due to rises in Covid-19 cases in the region.
Manuel Villegas, the Minister of Health, made the announcement at a press conference this morning, stating that “the maximum number of people, who are not living together, who [want to attend] private homes or [be] in terraces and restaurants is to be reduced from ten to six, throughout the Region of Murcia.”
A main source of outbreaks currently are large social gatherings such as; weddings, baptisms and communions, this is according to Villegas and the Monitoring Committee, who have recommended that these events should also be limited.
They are suggesting that a maximum of 30 people should only be in attendance to avoid any further outbreaks.
