The reasons why you can leave your municipality

From this Tuesday the entry and exit of the Almeria municipalities is limited

The Junta de Andalucía has decided to limit the mobility of citizens with the adoption of several measures: the perimeter closure of the community, the implementation of the curfew (and now its extension), the closure of non-essential activity from the six in the afternoon and the ban on entering and leaving all the municipalities of Andalusia.

This last measure has some exceptions. "The entry and exit of all the municipalities included in the provinces of the Autonomous Community of Andalusia, except for justified trips ", specifies the Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía (BOJA). These are:

- Assistance to health centers, services and establishments.

- Compliance with labor, professional, business, institutional or legal obligations.

- Attendance at university, teaching and educational centers, including nursery schools.

- Return to the place of habitual or family residence.

- Assistance and care for the elderly, minors, dependents, people with disabilities or especially vulnerable people.

- Travel to financial and insurance entities or refueling stations in neighboring territories.

- Required or urgent actions before public, judicial or notarial bodies.

- Renewals of permits and official documentation, as well as other administrative procedures that cannot be postponed.

- Performing exams or official tests that cannot be postponed.

- Displacement to carry out collection acts in orchards by their owners or tenants, as well as the care and feeding of domestic animals.

-Displacement for the acquisition of food products by those who have their habitual residence in localities that, being from another municipal term, lack establishments that allow the acquisition of such products and are neighboring towns with the municipalities with limited mobility.

-Assistance to veterinary care centers for urgent reasons.

- Displacements of athletes of absolute category, high level or high performance, coaches, judges or federated referees, for the sports activities of official competitions that are authorized at any time by the health authorities, which will be accredited by sports license or federative certificate.

- Due to force majeure or situation of need.

- Any other activity of a similar nature, duly accredited.

They are the same reasons for which entry and exit from the Autonomous Community of Andalusia is allowed.

But among municipalities, one more must be added: the development of hunting activities linked to the control of the overabundance of game species that can cause damage to ecosystems, in the productive cycles of agriculture and livestock, and road safety.

Bar closings: Moreno acknowledges that a decision will be made on Sunday

The president indicates that the data on deaths and hospitalizations are worrying

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has affirmed that the possibility of closing the hotel and catering businesses to try to stop coronavirus infections in the community is "on the table" and that a decision will be made on Sunday on the occasion of the meeting of the technical-scientific committee that advises the regional government.

In statements to TVE, collected by Europa Press, Moreno has indicated that the data on the deceased and those hospitalized in the community are worrying, which will lead her Government to decide on new measures this Sunday, which, if the data is negative, may.

She has indicated that "for now" they are not going to request the home confinement of the population, pointing out that it would be the "last of the resources", because this confinement "causes very serious consequences in the economic and social spheres. " She pointed out that there are other resources before, such as "limitation in the movement of many sectors" and depending on how the figures evolve, they will be more or less "restrictive" measures.

In this sense, he has indicated that the closure of the hotel and catering sector is a "proposal that is on the table" and that it will be debated depending on the provinces, because the incidence of the coronavirus is not the same in all. "You can not make a standard decision, but must be singled out based on the incidence," as indicated by the president.

He has expressed that it is "very sad" to have to "close" the hospitality industry, a fundamental economic sector in Andalusia and Spain, and that he has taken "very serious and sensible" measures.

Moreno has insisted that while there is no vaccine and effective treatment, we must try to limit the mobility of the citizen. "We have to prevent people from moving to those meeting points that are, unfortunately, the hotel industry," according to Moreno.

On the other hand, the president has considered that in order for a home confinement to be applied, a change has to be produced in the decree of the central government's state of alarm, because, as he insisted, the communities do not have the capacity to decide. He has expressed that hopefully we do not have to reach home confinement, but if we had to do it, we have to be prepared and we cannot be late, especially because the Christmas campaign is approaching.

"If decisions have to be made, let them be taken now and the ground is prepared for the future," according to Moreno, who has insisted on asking the central government to examine what is the appropriate regulatory framework for the communities or failing that the State, can make a decision on home confinement.

The positives skyrocket in Almería

The province registers 257 new cases this Friday

The evolution of the pandemic continues to be very worrying in Andalusia. Infections throughout the community rose to 4,627 this Friday. The Board, headed by its president, Juanma Moreno, has been warning for days that if the positives do not drop, more restrictive measures will be taken. This Thursday we knew the day on which they will be decided: this Sunday at the meeting of the expert committee. The closing of bars is already on the table.

And it is that the coronavirus does not give truce to any Andalusian province. In the case of Almería, this has seen how in two days the infections by Covid have increased considerably. If at the beginning of the week it was close to a hundred, this Friday the positives again far exceed 200 new cases. Today's 257 positives are dangerously close to the 300 (the provincial record in this pandemic) on October 29.

Despite the high number of infections, Almería (as happened this Thursday) is the second Andalusian province with fewer cases.

The situation is very worrying in some municipalities of the province, to the point that the mayors of the Nacimiento River region have asked their neighbors to confine themselves to stop contagion.

The positive news of the day is that Almería, after several days, does not add new deaths this Friday, despite the hard data recorded in the Andalusian community, in which 60 people infected with Covid have lost their lives in the last 24 hours. This is the second consecutive day in which 60 deaths have been added, this being the highest figure in the second wave.

The province of Jaén is by far the one that has added the most deaths, with 24 deaths, followed by Seville with 13 and Granada with eleven. Below the ten are the rest of the provinces with six in Cádiz, four in Córdoba and two in Malaga. Almería and Huelva are the only provinces that have not registered deaths.

It will all end in tiers

I am starting today with a bigger version of the charts from yesterday. Click on the image to see a bigger version of it. (You can see them this size every day by clicking on the image in the Monday-Friday charts and data I publish each week day. This allows you to see the full size image.)

The chart on the bottom right shows the 14 day cases values for the province of Almería, the Poniente health region and the El Ejido area (that includes Almerimar).

I am off to play golf soon. So I do not have time to do much research. However I believe that the Poniente health area will be classified at tier 2 of coronavirus measure. Starting from midnight tonight. Assuming that there is no massive increase in cases in the stats to be published today.

I need to do some work on the chart to add lines to show the threshold lines for each of the 4 tiers. I will do that when I get a chance.

What is interesting is that I think that if the tiers were based on the figures for the province as a whole we would be in tier 4. If it was based on the El Ejido area then I think we would be in tier 3. However I think we will be classified as tier 2 based on the stats for the Poniente health area.

I will look in to this in more detail soon. I will then publish the correct information, rather than what I think is going on.

Got to get ready for some golf now.

In an appearance in Seville before the media, during a visit to the central warehouse of the Andalusian Health Service (SAS), he defended the new measures announced yesterday by the President of the Board, Juanma Moreno, to deal with this "third wave "of the pandemic that affects Andalusia and that is coming" very aggressively. " He has indicated that the new measures, which involve the perimeter closure of the autonomous community and the provinces of Granada, Jaén and Seville and their respective municipalities, among others, are tough, "but necessary and essential."

He has indicated that at the moment the Board is working by health districts and a level will be established for each of them depending on the incidence of the pandemic (level 1, level 2, level 3 or level 4), just as the communities they agreed with the central government. He has pointed out that for each of these levels, there will be specific measures, and each health district will be framed within a level depending on the evolution of the pandemic.

He added that these specific measures are being finalized and throughout the day today they will be made public in the BOJA so that they come into force at the same time as the measures announced yesterday by the president, which come into effect at 00.00 hours of this Friday, October 30.

Bendodo explained that level 4, the most serious, is established when 250 positive cases of coronavirus are exceeded per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days. He has stated that the Andalusian average is close to 400 today, so that the situation is worrying and measures must be taken.

As Bendodo has added, these specific rules for each municipality included within a health district will be made public this Thursday and issues such as the capacity limit for events or celebrations will be detailed according to the incidence of the coronavirus in the municipality in question.

Perimeter closure, isolated provinces, hospitality ...: the measures in Andalusia

Bars will have to close at 10:30 p.m., half an hour before curfew

The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has announced this Wednesday the perimeter closure of the autonomous community from 00.00 hours this Friday, October 30 and until November 9, with the aim of curbing contagion by coronavirus. It also includes the perimeter closure in the provinces of Granada, Jaén and Seville, currently at level four of health alert.

Moreno has appeared via telematics before the media after presiding, in the Palacio de San Telmo in Seville, a meeting of the Advisory Council for High Impact Public Health Alerts, better known as the ´committee of experts´, to analyze the situation of the pandemic in the community and possible new measures to stop it.

Andalusia has added this Wednesday a total of 33 more deaths from Covid-19 coronavirus in 24 hours, 19 less than the day before but fifth highest number in the second wave of the pandemic, and 2,042 new positives confirmed by PCR and antigen tests, 781 less than this Tuesday.

These new measures of the Board are adopted after the decree of state of alarm approved last Sunday by the Council of Ministers allows the autonomous communities to set mobility and contact limitations with the protection of that constitutional instrument.

Thus, the autonomous communities may decide to limit the entry and exit of their territories, for the entire perimeter of the region or for a lower area for a minimum period of seven calendar days, and their presidents will be the competent delegated authorities.

Hostelry

The Junta de Andalucía has agreed this Wednesday to maintain the schedule of the general limitation of night mobility initially set by the Government of Spain for the strip from 23.00 to 6.00 hours so that, in coherence, it sets the closure of all the hospitality industry at 10.30 pm, while it has limited meetings to six people in both the public and private sectors, except between cohabitants.

Existing measures

Before the approval of this decree on the state of alarm, the Junta had already taken measures to stop the contagion in various parts of Andalusia. Thus, one of the first decisions agreed upon was the closure of the perimeter of Granada and its metropolitan area and the limitation of the mobility of people from 11:00 pm to 6:00 am, except for justifiable reasons. The measures also led to the suspension of face-to-face classes at the University of Granada.

A few days later came the decision on restrictions in the capitals of Córdoba, Jaén and Seville, as well as in twelve municipalities in those provinces, and in the Almeria town of Los Gallardos. For its part, the municipality of Ecija was affected by a mobility restriction that was extended. All these measures, some extended, were in force since last weekend with a last publication in the Official Gazette of the Junta de Andalucía (BOJA).

Regarding the restrictions that were approved for Córdoba, Jaén and Seville and for thirteen municipalities, they consisted, among other issues, in that the hotel and catering establishments will limit the capacity to 50 percent, including function rooms, both indoors and outdoors. outside, not being allowed the consumption in bar. The tables or groups of tables must keep a distance of at least 1.5 meters with respect to the chairs assigned to the other tables or groups of tables in order to ensure the maintenance of the proper physical distance of at least 1.5 meters between people seated at different tables or, where appropriate, groups.
