All of Malaga has returned to level 1 health alert, a decision taken by the Territorial Health Committee today, December 16.

The six health districts of the province abandon the level 0 health alert, described as “absolute freedom” due to the lack of restrictions. The entire province had remained at this level since the beginning of October.
