The health and social crisis that has generated the COVID-19 epidemic worldwide and, obviously, in Spain and in our Autonomous Community, has been and continues to be an unprecedented challenge for all public administrations, which have faced obliged to adopt and implement endless measures and actions to ensure control of the disease and reduce the uncontrolled spread of the virus.

They are measures of a very diverse nature in the field of health prevention, in conducting tests and selective screening or through the reinforcement of material and personal resources of the health systems. Likewise, the approval of numerous legal-regulatory provisions has been promoted for the establishment of mandatory criteria and restriction guidelines for society as a whole and, specifically, for certain economic and social sectors. This has even meant in our country the declaration of two states of alarm by the National Government in just over six months, although with a clearly differentiated approach between the two.

Thus, the approval of Royal Decree 926/2020, of October 25, which declares the state of alarm to contain the spread of infections caused by SARS-CoV-2, has sought to establish a general framework of action for all territorial administrations that make it possible to adopt restrictive measures that significantly affect fundamental rights, offering sufficient and stable legal coverage.

Apart from the measures contemplated in the aforementioned Royal Decree 926/2020, of October 25, which can be modulated, made more flexible and even adopted or not by the competent delegated authorities, which in the present state of alarm are the Presidents of the Autonomous communities and cities with Statute of Autonomy, the Autonomous Communities, since last June and after the end of the state of alarm, have also been agreeing on a wide range of preventive and restriction measures, taking into account the specific epidemiological situation of each territory, supported fundamentally in Law 14/1986, of April 25, General Health, in Law 33/2011, of October 4, General Public Health and in a very special way in Organic Law 3/1986, of April 14 , of Special Measures in Public Health Matters that,With sufficient legal status, it has granted public administrations an organic framework of protection for the adoption of far-reaching measures, restricting fundamental rights, for reasons of extraordinary gravity and urgency.

In our Region in recent months, a very high volume of provisions of different rank and scope of material and territorial application have been approved. Since the Agreement of June 19, 2020 of the Governing Council, which established the first general prevention and containment measures applicable in the Region of Murcia to face the health crisis situation caused by COVID-19, after the end of the state of alarm and for the reactivation phase and to date there have been numerous Orders from the Ministry of Health adopting the approval, as quickly as possible, of measures of an extraordinary or general nature, as well as of a sectoral or temporary nature, that affected to specific areas of activity or to specific territories,

Thus, it is worth highlighting the Order of August 15, 2020 of the Ministry of Health, by which extraordinary measures were adopted in the Region of Murcia, for the application and execution of the Agreement of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System on the declaration of coordinated actions in Public Health to respond to the situation of special risk derived from the increase in positive cases due to COVID-19, as well as orders August 26, September 3, October 9 and 26, 2020, which were approved successively general or sectoral complementary measures to alleviate the gradual increase in the number of infections that were occurring. Also numerous orders agreeing perimeter confinements, isolations, quarantines, restrictions on collective mobility, general suspension of activities,

All of this has been adopted in response to the third additional provision of Decree-Law 7/2020, of June 18, on measures to boost and reactivate the regional economy due to the health crisis (COVID-19), which enabled to the person in charge of the Ministry responsible for health, as a health authority, to modulate or modify, in accordance with the applicable regulations and in view of the evolution of the health situation, through an Order, the general hygiene and prevention measures and those related to capacity and the maximum number of people allowed for each type of establishment, facility or activity, approved by agreement of the Governing Council, in the same way that it was temporarily empowered to adopt the restrictive measures mentioned above ;Although the state of alarm decreed last October has affected the extension of the authorization conferred at the time to the head of this department, with regard to the measures regulated or established in the Royal Decree with respect to which the new state of alarm has introduced concrete forecasts.

Apart from those specific measures contemplated in Royal Decree 926/2020, of October 25, whose decision-making competence corresponds to the President of the Autonomous Community as Delegated Competent Authority, which involve an important affectation or limitation of rights considered fundamental, it remains It is essential to adopt many other measures, recommendations and restrictions aimed at the population as a whole and also in relation to the different sectors of activity to help control and reduce the rates of infections in the community.

Based on the recent document of October 22, 2020 of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System called Coordinated response actions for the control of the transmission of COVID-19, which has established a framework of action for a proportional response at different levels of health alert defined by a constant process of risk assessment based on a set of public health indicators, epidemiologists and competent technicians of the General Directorate of Public Health and Addictions of this Ministry have proceeded to prepare a Guide or action protocol, subsequently ratified by the COVID-19 Monitoring Committee, which constitutes the basis and foundation of this Order.

This aims to establish, with a greater degree of certainty and stability, a general structure for the impact of the pandemic based on the definition of four levels of risk or health alert (low, medium / high, very high and extreme) in which it can be find a municipality or a specific territorial area or even the Region as a whole, and this from an assessment of the risk in which said territory is located based on some parameters or public health indicators.

These indicators can be epidemiological, mainly taking into account the transmission rate and cumulative incidence of the disease in a given population, but also other secondary indicators that also allow us to notice the trend or evolution, favorable or negative, that the pandemic presents. Other healthcare indicators are also taken into consideration, such as the general number of beds occupied by COVID patients or the number of patients in intensive care units. They are, in short, important indicators that can show the degree of saturation of the public health system in order to avoid the collapse of health centers and services, whose negative effects we could see in some autonomous communities during the first phase of the pandemic.

Based on all these indicators and this constant evaluation of risk in all municipalities as well as in the Region, the level of alert in each territory will be determined. In this assessment, not only the levels of transmission and risk must be taken into account, but other variables must also be taken into consideration, such as the size of the municipality, its population density, its geographical or population characteristics, the origin of the outbreaks. , their traceability, as well as the trend or evolution of the rest of the epidemiological and healthcare indicators, both at the regional and municipal level, in order to properly interpret the transmission dynamics.

In consideration of these health alert levels, this standard specifies a series of measures, recommendations and criteria, both of a general and preventive nature for the population as a whole, and of a sectoral nature as they affect certain areas of economic and social activity. Furthermore, in the latter case, these sectoral measures may be applied to the entire Region or to the specific municipal or local scope, and this depending on the implication or repercussion that each type of activity may have.

Ultimately, this Order intends to become a general frame of reference that offers citizens a more specific knowledge of the risk levels in which a territory may find itself based on the aforementioned indicators, as well as the corresponding measures that, where appropriate. each of these levels can be attached to it.

That said, it is mandatory to reflect this Order in no way can it be understood as a framework or general instrument of a static and immovable nature, but will be the object of constant evaluation and also modulation based on the concurrent circumstances at all times, but that it should favor as a predictable way to make decisions about the actions and measures to be implemented in each territory.

A large part of the measures included in this Order, with different qualifications and modulations, had already been collected and have been applicable in many of the orders that have been approved in recent months. The great novelty of this Order is that, apart from the aforementioned Agreement of June 19 of the Governing Council, which remains in force in everything that does not oppose this norm and the Decrees of the President that can be approved at any time protection of the state of alarm, it allows to have a single legal reference instrument that avoids dispersion and constant regulatory modification with a perspective of longer permanence in time. Only, some very specific areas and sectors will essentially remain outside the scope of regulation of this standard,

Based on this Order, then, a constant analysis and evaluation of the regional epidemiological situation will be carried out, which, taking into account the criteria contained therein, will serve to determine the different levels or stages of health alert in which all municipalities are. of the Region of Murcia and this as a whole and, therefore, for the application of the concrete measures that must be implemented. Consequently, the full effectiveness of this provision is subject to the approval of the first order that determines the different levels of health alert in which each of the municipalities of the Region of Murcia are.

Ultimately, it should be noted that this pandemic not only constitutes a challenge for public administrations that must try to adopt the most appropriate measures at all times, but is also a global challenge for all citizens as a whole. Challenge due to the undeniable difficulties that the epidemic is generating in the entire population and especially in certain vulnerable sectors that have been affected from a health and human point of view. I am also challenged by the undeniable sacrifice that is causing broad sectors of the Spanish economy. Therefore, a global challenge that calls upon the individual responsibility of each and every one of the citizens who have in their hands the effectiveness and usefulness of the measures and actions implemented by the health administration. Without them,

All these measures are adopted in accordance with the provisions of article 11.1 of the Statute of Autonomy, approved by Organic Law 4/1982, of June 9, according to which the Region of Murcia has the competence of legislative development and enforcement in matters of health, hygiene, pharmaceutical management and hospital coordination in general, including that of Social Security, without prejudice to the provisions of number 16 of article 149.1 of the Constitution, the Ministry of Health being the department of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia in charge of the proposal, development and execution of the general guidelines of the Governing Council in the aforementioned matters, by virtue of article 11 of the President’s Decree 29/2019, of July 31, on the reorganization of the Regional Administration.

By virtue of this, in use of the powers conferred by the third additional provision of Decree-Law 7/2020, of June 18, on measures to stimulate and reactivate the regional economy due to the health crisis (COVID-19), at the proposal of the Director General of Public Health and Addictions,

I have:

Article 1. Purpose.

The purpose of this Order is to establish the general framework for the management of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Region of Murcia, by defining and classifying the health alert levels in which each of the municipalities and the Region can be framed. of Murcia as a whole, depending on the public health indicators that concur at any given time, as well as the general and sectoral measures, of a temporary nature, applicable to the different sectors of activity according to their level of framing, and all this in consonance with the document Coordinated Response Actions for the Control of Transmission by COVID-19, approved on October 22, 2020 by the Plenary of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System.

Article 2. Territorial and temporal scope of application.

The health alert levels and the measures provided for in this provision will be applicable, according to the cases and sectors of activity regulated in the Annex of the Governing Council Agreement of June 19, 2020, to each and every one of the municipalities of the Region of Murcia or this as a whole, in the terms provided in this order.

This order will remain in force as long as the health crisis generated by the COVID-19 epidemic persists, without prejudice to its constant review and modulation based on the epidemiological and health criteria adopted within the framework of the National Health System.

Article 3. Risk indicators for public health.

1. Risk indicators for public health are those epidemiological and healthcare parameters or elements whose evaluation at each moment reflects the level of risk in which a certain territory is located, in order to determine its level of health alert and, consequently, the measures and actions that must be implemented in it.

2. These indicators can be valued for a municipality or for the Region as a whole and, exceptionally, for territorial areas other than the municipal one (county councils, districts, basic health areas), especially in municipalities with more than 100,000 inhabitants.

For the purposes of applying this Order, the local entities and territories that make up “La Manga Consortium” (Las Barracas, Los Belones, Cabo de Palos, Cala Reona, Cobaticas, Islas Menores, Mar de Cristal, Playa Honda and La Manga del Mar Menor) will have a unitary treatment, resulting in the application of the regime that is applicable at all times to their basic health area number 43 (La Manga).

Article 4. Epidemiological indicators.

1. The epidemiological indicators that will be taken into consideration to assess the risk levels of a territory are:

a) Accumulated incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants at 14 days, corresponding to the last 2 epidemiological weeks.

b) Accumulated incidence rate per 100,000 inhabitants at 7 days, corresponding to the last epidemiological week.

c) Incidence rate of cases in people aged 65 or over at 7 and 14 days.

d) Percentage of cases diagnosed with traceability.

2. These indicators may be taken into consideration by municipality or for the entire Region.

3. The values ​​of the incidence rates will be applied taking into account complete epidemiological weeks.

Article 5. Transmission levels.

Taking into account the epidemiological indicators of sections a) and b) in article 4.1, there will be the following four levels of transmission and risk:

1. Extreme transmission:

? Greater than 500 at 14 days or

? Greater than 250 at 7 days

2. Very high transmission:

? Between 250 and 500 at 14 days or

? Between 150 and 250 at 7 days

3. Medium / high transmission:

? Between 75 and 250 at 14 days or

? Between 50 and 150 at 7 days

4. Low transmission:

? Less than 75 at 14 days or

? Less than 50 at 7 days

Article 6. Healthcare indicators.

1. The care indicators are those that have as a reference the occupation of hospital beds as a whole and the occupation of intensive care beds by COVID-19 cases, according to the criteria established by the document “Coordinated response actions for the control of transmission of COVID-19 ”.

2. The assessment of these indicators will always be carried out on a regional scale.

Article 7. Levels or phases of healthcare risk.

1. Considering the healthcare indicators in article 6, there will be two phases or levels of risk:

1. PHASE 1: High occupancy of the assistance devices by people affected by COVID-19, but which allows to maintain a standardized assistance with respect to the rest of pathologies. It implies the concurrence of the following requirements:

? The average of the total patients who remain hospitalized for COVID-19, including those who are in ICU, in the last 7 days is less than 400.

? The average number of patients admitted to the ICU in the last 7 days is a maximum of between 85 and 100 people.

2. PHASE 2: Very high occupancy of healthcare devices by people affected by COVID-19, which creates difficulties in maintaining standardized healthcare with respect to other pathologies. Provided that any of the following requirements are met:

? The average number of people admitted to hospitals for COVID-19 in the last 7 days is more than 400 people

? Or, the average of patients who remain admitted to the ICU in the last 7 days is between 100 and less than 125.

2. Exceeding the Phase 2 level is considered extreme risk.

3. These criteria may be modulated according to the specific epidemiological situation and the hospital situation and the health centers.

Article 8. Health alert levels.

1. The health alert levels are the management stages of the COVID-19 health crisis in which the different territorial areas are framed based on the evolution of the transmission and care indicators observed at all times.

2. There will be 4 levels of health alert depending on the indicators applied. Specific:

– Level 1: low alert level.

– Level 2: medium / high alert level.

– Level 3: very high alert level.

– Level 4: extreme alert level.

3. The determination of the alert level in which each municipality or territory is located will be carried out fundamentally in attention to the epidemiological transmission levels. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the assessment of the levels of transmission and risk, the size of the municipality, its population density, its geographical or population characteristics, as well as the trend or evolution of the rest of the epidemiological and healthcare indicators may also be taken into consideration. , both at the regional and municipal levels, so that the transmission dynamics can be properly interpreted.

4. Specifically, in municipalities with less than 10,000 inhabitants, in addition to the accumulated incidence rates, other factors such as the number of cases, the percentage of cases with traceability, the cases associated with outbreaks and the scope or origin of the outbreak.

5. Likewise, in order to determine the level of alert in relation to the three most populated municipalities in the Region, that is, Murcia, Cartagena and Lorca, the epidemiological transmission bands, provided for in article 4, may be reduced or modulated, if a worrying evolution of the accumulated incidence is detected that could affect or compromise the healthcare capacity of the Region of Murcia.

4. The Region of Murcia, as a whole, will also be at a regional health alert level at all times, taking into account the level of regional epidemiological transmission, as well as the phase or level of healthcare risk.

Article 9. Implementation of actions and measures.

1. At each level of health alert, the measures established in this order will be applied for each area or sector of activity in order to control the transmission of the virus and preserve the healthcare capacity of the health system.

2. In general, the adoption and taking of measures for the different sectors of activity will be carried out according to the level of health alert in which a municipality is found or, where appropriate, a lower territorial area.

3. Notwithstanding the foregoing, for certain areas or sectors of activity the level of regional health alert will be taken into consideration, taking into consideration for these purposes the levels of epidemiological and regional healthcare transmission.

4. Generally, the same regional or municipal measures will be applied for very high and extreme transmission levels with the particularities provided for in the articles for this last level, although those measures provided for may be additionally adopted by the Delegated Competent Authority. in Royal Decree 926/2020, of October 25, which declares the state of alarm to contain the spread of infections caused by SARS-CoV-2.

Article 10. Determination of the level of health alert.

1. The determination of alert levels, both municipal and regional, will be adopted on a weekly basis, after evaluation of the existing epidemiological and healthcare indicators.

2. For this purpose, the attribution of a higher level of health alert and, consequently, the application of more restrictive measures will be carried out taking into consideration the cumulative incidence 7 days of the last epidemiological week.

3. On the contrary, to attribute a lower health alert level that leads to a softening of restrictive measures, the indicator of the last 14 days will be taken. In addition, to make measures more flexible, a significant decrease in incidence must have been registered and the incidence values ​​will be evaluated together with the trend and the amount of the observed decrease.

4. If the epidemiological / healthcare situation worsens significantly in the Region of Murcia as a whole, the modification or tightening of the measures at the regional level will be assessed.

Article 11. Types of measures.

In general, the measures and recommendations contained in this Order are classified as follows:

1. General measures and recommendations applicable to the entire Region, regardless of the existing health alert level at any given time.

2. Measures and recommendations of a sectoral nature applicable to all municipalities in the Region of Murcia, taking into account the level of regional health alert.
