LATEST COVID-19 UPDATES in COSTA DEL SOL
Upd. May 16th, 2020
Costa del Sol advances to STAGE 1 of lockdown in Spain
On Monday, May 18th, the province of Malaga will move into "FASE 1" (Stage 1) of the Spanish government's plan to gradually scale down its coronavirus restrictions.
Hence, the whole Andalusia region takes a step closer to the post-coronavirus 'new normality', meaning that many of the current lockdown restrictions will be relaxed. Social contact will be permitted in groups of up to ten persons, always respecting distances, and bars and restaurants will be able to open their outdoor terraces, but with more space between tables.
Places of worship will also be able to reopen, but with only a third of their total capacity.
Movement around the entire province will also be permitted. Groups of up to ten relatives and friends will be allowed to get together in a private home or on an outdoor terrace of a restaurant, bar or cafeteria or in another public space.
When people gather, they will have to maintain a distance of at least two metres between them, follow the hygiene rules and wash their hands frequently.
Bars, restaurants and cafeterias will only be able to serve 50% of their terrace tables.
Hotels and self-catering tourist accommodation may open but not their communal areas and facilities. However, hotels in Costa del Sol will still wait a few more weeks to actually open and most of them are considering to wait until early July tu be operative.
Shops and small businesses may now open to the public without appointment, but just up to 30 per cent of their capacity.
Stores with more than 400 square metres may also open, but only using an area of 400 square metres marked out within the store. This will allow clothes stores and car showrooms, for example, to resume trading, but in a controlled area with limited numbers of customers.
Cultural events may be held in the open air with up to 200 people providing sufficient spaces can be left between seats. Cultural events indoors are limited to 30 people, and no more than 30 per cent of the premises' normal capacity.
Museums will be able to open, selling tickets in advance and keeping visitors down to a third of normal capacity.
Street markets will also be able to resume, respecting social distancing.
