Ease up in Ten Towns

Polopos

Polopos

As you can see in the other article published this morning, contagions are slackening off within the province and the pressure is easing on hospital facilities.

The Health Department, belonging to the Junta de Andalucía has decided to ease restrictions on ten municipalities; four of which will remained closed down but their nonessential businesses, such as the hostelry sector, can now reopen. The other six can reopen their town limits.

The four towns that have dropped below 1,000 per 100,000 mark but remain above the 500 mark, meaning that bars can open but town limits must remain closed are: Huélago, Íllora, Láchar and Píñar.

The six towns that can now reopen their boundaries are: Polopos, Sorvilán, Gójar, Moclín, Montejícar and Otura.

These changes take effect from 00.01h this Saturday morning.

Editorial comment: It appears that at least three of the towns to reopen will now have to wait for further confirmation from the committee: Montejícar, Otura and Gójar.

    Margaret: It seems that they are waiting a little longer to see that it remains below, I imagine. On the 1st of this month the contagion figure stood at 501.3 and has dipped below and gone back up before.

    Unfortunately Otura, Sorvilan and possibly Montejícar have not been released from their current levels of confinement. It is not clear to me what criteria is being applied, but it seems “they” are waiting to see if the lower figures are sustained.
