Velez-Malaga has suspended ‘blue zone’ parking fees in commercial areas after the Junta de Andalucia ordered the closure of non-essential businesses in the town.

THE parking spaces can still be used, but free of charge.

Councillor for Mobility, José María Domínguez, said that “it is understood that if businesses are not operating, neither should these parking meters.”

“We are undertaking those obligations that are required of us and appeal to the public to stay at home. In the event that it is necessary to leave, do so with all the necessary precautions.”

The council has met with the local police to increase the number of officers on the streets, both national and local, to monitor compliance with the anti-Covid measures established by the Junta de Andalucía.

As of this afternoon, Thursday, January 21, the Junta will add eight more locations in Malaga province to the list of towns and cities with more than 500 infections per 100,000 people – which already includes Velez-Malaga.

These towns will have border confinement for at least two weeks, coming into effect at 0.00h on Saturday (midnight of Friday into Saturday).
