New Restrictions Limit Numbers At Private Gatherings

Private gatherings in Andalucia must now be limited to six people.  The announcement today confirmed this as the latest step in the battle to stop the spread of coronavirus.  The limit will not apply to members of the same household.  Previously, there was only a recommendation that gatherings be restricted to ten people.  The current rules for weddings, funerals, baptisms, and other events are not being changed.

Andalucia is resisting the virus “better than others” according to regional minister Elias Bendodo.  He says “As the figures show, we have 161 confirmed cases per 100,000 inhabitants and 59% fewer patients in hospital than at the height of the pandemic on 30 March”.


Mass Coronavirus Testing

Testing will be accelerated in places with contagion figures of more than 500 per 100,000 of the population.  Mass testing will be carried out on people living in these areas.  In Malaga province, the only place affected by this currently is Villanueva de la Concepción.
