  • The Junta will not impose any further modification or tightening of the current pandemic restrictions that will remain in place until 10 January

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, confirmed this Monday that the Christmas measures to control the pandemic in the region will not be changed and remain in force for the New Year.

According to Moreno, “the established criteria will remain in place this week”.

“Thanks to everyone's effort it has been possible to get to the beginning of Christmas with reasonably low infection and hospitalisation incidence rates.”

Therefore the meeting of the committee of experts that advises the Andalusian government on the pandemic will not impose any further modification or tightening of the current restrictions that will remain in place until 10 January.

Mobility between Andalusian provinces is allowed, and the hospitality industry will be able to continue serving from 8pm until 10.30pm.

However, from 6 to 8 pm, although bars and restaurants may serve the public, they are not allowed to serve alcohol.

In addition, shops can remain open until 9pm and the curfew is still set between 11pm and 6am with the exception of 31 December, New Year's Eve, which starts at 1.30am.
