  • Cañete la Real, Villanueva del Trabuco, Algatocín, Benaoján, Montejaque and Serrato also exceed a thousand infections per hundred thousand inhabitants

Non-essential businesses - including bars and restaurants - will remain closed for at least one more week in Ronda, Cañete la Real, Villanueva del Trabuco, Algatocín, Benaoján and Montejaque which all continue to exceed one thousand infections per hundred thousand inhabitants.

The small town of Serrato in the Serranía de Ronda, with just five cases, has been added to the list in Malaga province this Friday (12 February) because it also exceeds the limit set by the Junta de Andalucía to order the general closure of non-essential activities. Municipal borders will be closed too - except for justified reasons - when any area exceeds a cumulative incidence rate of 500.

The measures will remain in force until the data is reviewed again next Thursday when all municipal measures may be eased, toughened or remain the same - depending on the incidence rate - and take effect from the following Saturday.
