The Junta, after a meeting of the Committee of Health Experts, has announced new, restrictive measures, amongst them the closure of beaches during the night.
They also announced a night curfew for those municipalities that have over 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants within fourteen days. This will have to be backed by the Andalusian High Court to be legal, by the way.
The Junta also urges local authorities to control public spaces and areas to clamp down on open-air, bottle parties, which is why the Junta recommends that coastal municipalities close their beaches to the public between 23.00h and 07.00h the next morning, if they are at Level Two, Three or Four (Costa Tropical is at Level Two).
However, chiringuitos and beach bars would be exempt from this restriction.
Further measures are restrictions on the hostelry sector (restaurant/bars etc) concerning maximum occupation, depending on the Health Level. These restrictions come into effect on Thursday.
Therefore, in the interiors of bars and restaurants the maximum number of diners per table can be between four, and ten, depending on the Health Level. Customers can only be served at the bar in exteriors for areas in Level One, Two and Three .
Nightclubs and discos, customers must register their name upon entering to make tracing easier in case of outbreaks. The maximum occupation in interiors is 50% for Level Two.
Editorial comment: bear with us because until the BOJA is published later today with the definitive condition, things will remain as clear as mud.
