SND/427/2020 published in the BOE on the 22nd concerns municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants and introduces more flexible restrictions.
Bars & Restaurants: customers are permitted inside with the exception of discotheques and night bars. Customers can only be served at their table and are not allowed to use the bar.
The limit on persons allowed to enter is 40% of the establishment’s normal capacity. Bar and restaurant terraces remain restricted to 50% occupation
*Exception: where the town centres of two municipalities are joined, they will be excluded from this concession. This refers to conurbations; i.e., an extended urban area, typically consisting of several towns merging with the suburbs of a central city.
Editorial comment: In the case of Salobreña, we still do not know whether their request to be classified as having fewer than 10,000 has been accepted or not.
The case of La Herradura is even more interesting because when municipalities of fewer than 5,000 inhabitants were told that they did not have to impose a timetable of going out for walks etc, La Herradura had just over 5,000 so they missed this boat. Now with a limit of 10,000, there is every logical chance that the village can get through and be included in this latest easing of restrictions. After all, La Caleta, La Guardia and Lobres have already been accepted as separate entities and thus be included in the 5,000 inhabitant rule.
