  • "A huge army is going to be formed that will allow us to safely coordinate the opening of 1,000 kilometres of coastline this summer," said regional president Juanma Moreno

The Andalusian government has launched an emergency employment plan for safe beaches this summer which will see the hiring of around 3,000 people to ensure the control and implementation of protection and security measures against the coronavirus.

This initiative was described by regional president Juanma Moreno as "pioneering" and will "give the councils the possibility of having sufficient human resources to order and plan the enjoyment of the beaches across the whole coast this summer".

Moreno added that "with these contracts, together with the personnel that the town halls already have as lifeguards and local police and civil protection officers, a huge army is going to be formed that will allow us to safely coordinate the opening of the beaches this summer along the 1,000 kilometres of coastline that Andalucía enjoys".

The Junta president also stressed that this plan aims to "defend the good image and reputation of the tourism sector, as well as supporting these unemployed people" who will recieve training before carrying out monitoring tasks and the organisation of safe distances during the summer.
