The control on the access points of Salobreña might be keeping people out, but it’s not keeping them in; at home, that is.
Yes, there has been a large increase in Salobreñeros breaking the quarantine measures and ending up fined. In fact, the Policía Local handed out 30 fines in just one day, bless their cotton socks.
That number of fines is the same amount issued when the Lock Down began and people were still getting used to it, so this increase reflects a certain restlessness amongst the locals.
The Mayor, María Eugenia Rufino, has therefore called upon residents to exercise more patience and understanding, “there are many cases of infection in Salobreña and many confined in isolation as a precaution with suspected infection,” she explained.
But it’s not all, “stay home and behave” because the town is stocking up with masks (after having issued them to essential-services personnel) so that should the quarantine be lifted next week then they will start handing out surgical masks, thanks to the Town Hall having acquired 10,000 units.
