Andalusia will extend the current measures against the coronavirus until the weekend after the bridge: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 04/12/2020 18:15h
The expert committee is scheduled to meet on December 10 to agree on the day-to-day conditions in the coming weeks.
The Board plans to extend the measures that are currently in force in Andalusia against the coronavirus – closure of establishments, curfew and perimeter closure of municipalities – until the weekend after the bridge, as confirmed by the Ministry of Health and Families to ABC.
Thus, the Governing Council, which will be held on December 9, Wednesday, will approve the extension of the measures, which will remain in force until the weekend of December 12 and 13. On Thursday the 10th the President of the Board will announce the new measures that will be in force during Christmas.
In this way, the measures that the Andalusian Government decides for the community and that will be communicated on December 10, once the bridge is over, will be applied after the indicated date.
It should be remembered that, right now, throughout Andalusia the same measures are imposed to stop the advance of the coronavirus pandemic. Non-essential commercial establishments and hospitality establishments must be closed at six in the afternoon; the curfew is imposed from ten at night until seven in the morning: and it is forbidden to enter and leave both the community and each municipality without just cause.
The meeting of the committee of experts on Thursday the 10th is scheduled to take place in the afternoon and that the chief executive will appear before the media at the end of the day to report on the decisions taken. The last committee meetings have been taking place on Sunday mornings.
The president of the Board, Juanma Moreno, has referred this Friday to the next meeting of the expert committee, trusting that if the “positive” evolution of recent days on the incidence of the pandemic in the community continues, the opening hours of hospitality and commerce businesses, especially before the next Christmas holidays may be modified.
He has indicated that the will of the Board is “to extend these hours as much as possible, but it has to be done with great serenity, with great balance and with a lot of head and, of course, taking into account the proposals made by the committee of experts.”
“Seeing the evolution of the data, which has been very positive since the last decisions adopted by the Andalusian Government, I tend to be positive, but I do not want to throw the bells flying”, as indicated by the president, who stressed that the decisions they have to be very thoughtful, prudent and balanced.

A scam alert has been issued about a message for screening which is a hoax: The regional government has reported to national police that an SMS message, saying its from the health authority, is not from them and should be regarded as a hoax.
The message invites people to go for a screening and reads similar to the following,
“We are informing you that you have been selected to perform a collective screening test for COVID-19, you must be present with your DNI on December…” the message goes on to state a particular place and time, this message is a hoax, and the health authorities have made a statement to that effect.
In any instance, if any person is concerned whether or not a message received is genuine, then they must contact by phone their nearest health care centre.
Furthermore, people who receive these messages should be aware, the police claim that forwarding the message to others could be damaging and illegal.
When in any doubt, you are to contact your health centre or ask a health professional before doing anything or responding in any way. Source: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/12/04/hoax-sms-causes-confusion/

UPDATED 04Dec20- What we know about plans to open Spain’s ski resorts: Even as its northern neighbour France banned its ski resorts from opening and threatened border checks to stop people from crossing the border to ski, Spain has not completely ruled out opening its ski resorts. In fact, Spain’s Tourism Minister has insisted Spain is determined to open its ski resorts this season.
However restrictions on travel that have been announced over the Christmas period means it could be difficult for those who don’t live near a resort to get to the slopes, if they want to abide by the rules.
