    New Restrictions now applicable in the municipalities for only up to seven days

    An extraordinary meeting of Andalusian Prime Minister Juan Manuel Moreno with the Committee of Experts has taken place yesterday, after which Moreno presented some innovations in the assessment of incidence in Andalusian municipalities.

    Instead of 14 days as before, from now on it will be determined for a period of seven days at a time whether a municipality has to close or whether non-system-relevant trade and gastronomy have to close.

    Instead of two times a week as before, an assessment of the situation will only be made once a week – on Thursdays. The current infection figures from Thursday are therefore decisive in each case. The new measures decided on each Thursday will come into force on the following Saturday.

    The previous parameters with which an assessment is made do not change: Communities with a 14-day incidence of more than 500 infected persons will have to lock down. Municipalities with an incidence of 1,000 infected persons must additionally close down restaurants and non-systemic trade. However, only for seven days and no longer for 14 days as before.

    “We must not let up now,” the Minister concluded. “The issue is not over yet, especially since the vaccine is also being delivered to Spain and Andalusia very slowly.” Juan Manuel Moreno continued to ask for the cooperation of the population, especially with regard to the upcoming carnival. “There will be no official carnival and I ask you not to have an inoficial one at home either.” Nevertheless, the Prime Minister spoke of a “little light at the end of the tunnel” that could be seen after hard weeks of the third wave.
