Update on coronavirus (Covid 19)
14 Mar 2020 - Ian Whyte

As far as we are aware at the time of writing, there have been no further cases of Covid 19 confirmed on Condado de Alhama. The person who was confirmed with the infection is in hospital and there have as yet been no positive results from their close contacts. The testing is continuing.

The Spanish government has decreed that from Monday for two weeks all personal movement has been restricted. There are some exemptions which are listed below.

The Murcia government has decreed that all commercial premises open to the public except supermarkets and pharmacies are to be closed with immediate effect. This includes all bars and restaurants at Condado de Alhama. The supermarket is expected to remain open.

Gardening, rubbish collection, street cleaning, security, communications and general maintenance at Condado are expected to continue to operate as normal.

Admiburgos will continue to work normally although the office won’t be open to the public; the service will be provided by phone or email.

Obviously all workers will take precautions to minimise personal contact.
