THE MAYOR of Callosa de Segura, has decided that copying Orihuela and Elche in tightening social-distancing regulations is a tenable solution in the face of increasing Covid-19 figures throughout the area.
The new rules have a major impact on social and family gatherings, which according to health authorities, is the main reason for the virus spreading throughout regions.
Manuel Martínez Sirvent (pictured) has already confirmed that playgrounds will be closed and public gardens and parks will close at 8pm.
Emphasis is also placed on having outdoor meetings (instead of indoors) and ensuring that any indoor spaces have increased ventilation with reinforced cleaning and disinfection throughout.
Groups of tables inside establishments and on the terraces have a recommendation that they shouldn’t exceed six persons, with a distance of 1.5 meters between different sets of chairs and tables.
The wearing of masks will be forced at all times except when eating or drinking.
People are also advised to avoid smoking in public.
