Competa Town Hall has been closed until Monday, November 16, closed after the mayor and another council member tested positive for coronavirus.
Mayor Obdulio Pérez is one of those infected and said the measure is intended to “prevent future infections” both among the municipal staff and members of the public.
He told Diario Sur that he is self-isolating but isn’t displaying any symptoms.
Pérez said all council officials have been tested with no further positives and insisted “there is no need to fear an outbreak in the municipality”.
However, he asked the public to continue respecting established rules “so that we can announce soon that we are free of Covid”.
There are currently six active cases in the town “and all of them and their contacts are in quarantine and controlled”, he said.
The council will still be dealing with enquiries telematically.
