Concerns over the number of people living in Almeria City and the coastal region who have holiday homes in the three Alpujarra localities, along with national government warnings that this is a critical week for Spain in the fight against Covid-19, prompted the councils of the three to agree to restrict movements in and out from Monday morning onwards.

The closures have been established in collaboration with the Guardia Civil and Civil Protection.

Law enforcement officers are tightly controlling the handful of roads which remain open: one accessing Fondon and one to Fuente Victoria. Two roads to Fuente Victoria are still open.
