Andalusia will remain closed during the Bridge of the Immaculate and the Constitution. This is what Juanma Moreno announced this Sunday at noon after presiding over the committee of experts of the Junta de Andalucía to assess the situation of the community and the continuity or tightening of the restrictive measures decreed two weeks ago to try to stop the advance of the pandemic of Covid-19.
Therefore, the Andalusian Government has decreed the extension of the measures until December 10, Thursday, after the bridge of next month, with little news.

The Chairman of the Board has assured that it is “aware of the enormous difficulties of merchants and hoteliers” in the province of Granada after two weeks without activity but has chosen to keep the restrictions in force except in the southern district because “sadly the data is what it is”, with an incidence of double the national average, and it makes no sense “to enter a hasty race would be bread for today and hunger for tomorrow. ”
In any case, Moreno has advanced that the Board is studying activating an “additional support plan” for the sectors affected by the total closure of the activity in the province of Granada and has advanced that a “weekly evaluation” of the evolution of the pandemic “in case it were possible to relax without waiting for December 10.”
The already known measures
