Murcia’s COVID-19 Monitoring Committee yesterday announced the change which means that terraces can now be 100% occupied.
Up to four non-cohabitants can share an outside table in a rule that was changed last week.
Authorities decided not to increase numbers any further for the time being and the night curfew start time will remain at 10.00 pm.
On the other hand, local perimeter closures are being reintroduced tomorrow to eight municipalities due to increasing coronavirus infections.
The areas are: Abarán, Alhama, Caravaca, Ceutí, Fuente Álamo, Puerto Lumbreras, Torre Pacheco, and Ulea.
Terrace service for bars and restaurants will however continue to be allowed.
