The Junta de Andalucia today announced tough new measures in an attempt to slow the rise in coronavirus cases.
After a meeting of the Junta’s panel of experts on Sunday, president Juanma Moreno held a Press briefing outlining the new restriction that will come into force at midnight on Monday.
Restrictions on movement between municipalities without a good reason. For Marbella this means nothing west of Guadalmina, east of Cabopino and up the Ronda, Ojen and Istan roads. You will, however, be allowed to travel to work.
All non-essential businesses, including bars and restaurants must close at 6pm.
A curfew on movement between 10pm and 7am.
Schools and colleges will remain open.
Only six people are allowed to meet, both in public and private homes.
These restrictions will be reviewed on November 23, and Marbella is currently classified as ‘extreme’ risk.
These new regulations are terrible news for the already embattled hospitality sector, with several well known restaurants having already closed their doors for good.
