The hotel sector in the Region of Murcia is once again affected by the rise of the coronavirus pandemic. The bars, cafes and restaurants of the 45 municipalities will close from this Saturday and only take-away and home services will be allowed. In this way, the service is prohibited inside and on the terraces of these places in the face of the unstoppable increases in the cases of covid-19 registered in recent weeks throughout the community.

This is the last measure, which will have a minimum duration of 14 days from Saturday, which has been agreed by the regional government at the meeting of the Monitoring Committee for covid-19 in the Region that was held this morning. In this way, the Region joins the measure also imposed in recent days in the communities of Castilla y León, Catalonia, Navarra, Asturias and in the autonomous city of Melilla. 

On the other hand, the maintenance of the curfew has also been approved and the limitation of the use of playgrounds in the different towns with a more restrictive schedule. The spokesperson for the Covid Monitoring Committee in the Region, Jaime Pérez , is expected to appear at 1:00 p.m. to give more details about this new restriction.

It is expected that the order will be published in the Official Gazette of the Region of Murcia (BORM) next Friday and that it will come into force this Saturday.
