Andalucia Restrictions Set To Be Tightened

The regional government of Andalucia will meet on Friday with a committee of experts to discuss further tightening of the restrictions which are currently in place.   Regional President Juanma Morena said today that new measures must be introduced which will “unfortunately be tougher from the point of view of mobility.” 

The Regional President says that on Friday movement will be restricted despite the positive efforts of people in Andalucia during the holiday period. “I anticipate that on Friday we will foreseeably turn the faucet towards closing mobility among Andalusian citizens themselves.”  The President acknowledged that the Christmas period has played a large part in the rapidly increasing numbers, though he added that “the majority of Andalusians have been very responsible”.
