A ray of sunshine at the end of the pandemic tunnel as Andalucian Vice President and Minister of Tourism, Juan Marin, announced that beaches are probably going to open this summer.
On Monday, the Minister shared his optimism with the Andalucian Council of Chambers of Commerce, proclaiming that there will be time for people to enjoy the beach before the summer sets unto autumn.
Furthermore, Juanma Moreno, president of the Junta de Andalucia, echoed the minister’s sentiments, but ensured the public that it won’t be a free-for-all and there will be limitations put in place. Social distancing will continue and be enforced through perimeters and guidelines.
Morena added that he is in discussions with hotels and restaurants about the plans for gradually lifting restrictions.
It will be the job of local and regional police to monitor and control the number of people using beaches.
The Junta are looking to mirror the Italians by introducing a voucher. This complimentary voucher will be reserved for the local Andalucia residents. These vouchers will allow to stay in hotels and dine in restaurants in the Autonomous Community of Andalucia.
However, Minister Marin has stressed the need ‘patience’ among all citizens, pointing out there’s almost two months before these new procedures might be put in place. In addition, contended that the health and safety of the public is the primary concern.
