Another 18 of Malaga bar and restaurants owners have been sanctioned in the last 24 hours for flouting de-escalation restrictions, according to the local police.

AT least five of them were guilty of serving clients inside the establishment – something that is not allowed until Phase 2, which starts on Monday June 1. The local police had to remind a further 328 hospitality establishments of the Phase 1 restrictions (on Thursday), which includes a two-metre distance between tables and terraces open to just to 50% of capacity. So far the police have reported 4,073 incidents, of which 61 establishments have been sanctioned to date since de-escalation began, according to Malaga Town Hall.

Additionally, 115 people were fined for not respecting de-escalation restrictions, in the last 24 hours alone. Of the 115, 61 were sanctioned for not maintaining social distances of at least 2 metres, 25 for not wearing masks, and the others for not respecting other restrictions, such as failing to comply with timetabled outings.
