Spain to open swimming pools and shopping malls from Monday June 1st: Spain on Thursday said it will further relax confinement measures from next week, allowing 70 percent of the population to go to restaurants, swimming pools and shopping centres. From Monday, new areas of the country will be allowed to open swimming pools, albeit to limited numbers of people, and beaches where people will have to maintain at least a distance of two metres.
This second phase will cover the whole of Andalusia and Valencia, a large part of Catalonia, as well as the Balearics and Canary islands, the health ministry said. About 70 percent of Spain’s population will be affected by this new phase, which will also see the reopening of cinema halls, theatres and auditoriums but at a third of capacity.
Shopping centres will also be allowed to reopen but at reduced capacity and indoor dining at restaurants will also be permitted. Full article: https://www.thelocal.es/20200529/spain-to-open-swimming-pools-and-shopping-malls-from-monday-june-1st
