PLANS in Andalucía to extend hospitality and commercial opening hours in the run-up to Christmas
The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, indicated today that he is pleased with the ‘positive’ effects of the current lockdown and is hopeful that an extension in the hours of hospitality and commercial businesses can take place before Christmas.
Speaking to journalists in Chiclana de la Frontera, where the Adacca Los Gallos center has opened, which cares for people with acquired brain injuries, the president indicated that the ultimate decision would be made at the meeting of the expert committee on Thursday, December 10, but that he felt ‘more optimistic’ that officials will ‘extend these schedules as much as possible.” However, the president warned that the community must remain calm and prudent so as not to regret the decisions made in December.
“Seeing the evolution of the data, which has been very positive since the last decisions adopted by the Andalucían Government, I tend to be positive, but I do not want to throw the bells flying.”
Ex pat residents in Spain are sitting with their fingers crossed as well as the hundreds of Bar owners.
Bar owner Mark Sutherland from Fuengirola’s popular Luna Bar said: ” It will be a great relief if they do and it sounds positive – the extra hours will be very welcome”
Meanwhile a close source at Mijas Town Hall revealed, ” The two time limits are either midnight or 10PM, although neither has been decided yet, but thats the political chatter”
