New Covid Prevention Measures

AND Juanma Moreno PM experts committeeThe Junta de Andalucia has just announced its awaited decision concerning what anti-Covid measure it will be taking, which includes closing the regional borders.

The PM, Juanma Moreno, after meeting with the health-emergency committee, announced that the closure of the regional borders starts tomorrow night and will remain in place until the 9th of November (23.59h on the 8th).

“Nobody will be able to enter or leave Andalucía other than for a justified cause,” said Sr. Moreno, adding that the night curfew will remain as the Central Government recommended, from 23.00h until 06.00h, which means that restaurants and bars, etc, must close at 22.30h.

Furthermore, the restrictions in place on the city of Granada and its metropolitan area will extend to Sevilla and Jaén, as well as the Vega de Málaga. This means that a total of 448 municipalities will have their borders closed.

Social gatherings remain restricted to a maximum of six persons with the exception of those that live in the same household, as 57% of all hospital cases belong to the cities of Granada and Sevilla.

These measures have been taken now to prevent spreading contagion during the coming All-Saints, bank-holiday weekend.

    Ethel: the article that you have commented on was posted on the 28th of October… which is almost a month ago… of course it is old news! Did you even look at the date? We publish figures every week on a Tuesday and earlier today we published an article on the latest restrictions in force.

    If you are a UK resident, you can leave, because the regulations in place permit certain exceptions for crossing the border, one of which is “to return to your place of residence.” If you were in the UK and needed to get back to your Spanish residence, that would not be a problem. It all depends where you officially reside. You should check with your airline.
