THE Junta de Andalucia has revealed that all non-essential businesses and activities, including restaurants and bars, must close or end by 6pm.
The new measure aimed to tackle the spread of coronavirus will come into force from midnight tonight.
It will be the law until at least November 23, when the rate of infection and other statistics will be analysed before deciding whether or not to extend the rule.
In Granada, due to a much worse evolution of the disease, restaurants, bars and non-essential businesses must close entirely until November 23.
