NEW covid restrictions have been announced by the Junta de Andalucía as they hope to stop the spread of the coronavirus. Here is the breakdown:
A lockdown of movement (curfew) between the hours of 11pm and 6am is to be enforced, although the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, wants the measure to be “the same throughout Spain.”
The curfew applies to Granada and will affect its metropolitan area, however, the decision is pending approval from TSJA.
The decision for the curfews and new restrictions have been made despite Andalusia currently being below the average in accumulated cases, however, according to the Minister of Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, “the curve is very worrying,”
He continued to add that for “two weeks we’ve had a plateau phase, although in the “last five days there has been a ‘very important’ rebound in cases and admissions,” he said.
Andalusia has reported 200 deaths so far this week.
Jesús Aguirre said: “they have made packs of three free face masks available for Andalucían retirees on the health card.”
We will continue to update this as new rules are confirmed and further restrictions are announced.
