The Plenary of the City Council of Rafal has unanimously approved the suspension of the occupancy rate of public roads for the terraces of bars, restaurants and all types of hotel establishments in the municipality while the State of Alarm due to COVID-19 continues to be in force.

The council introduced the measure when the Government first decreed the State of Alarm, and it is now being extended, retroactively.

The mayor, Manuel Pineda, explained that the suspension of the rate “has been effective since 1 November for such establishments, who we hope to help, to alleviate the losses caused by the pandemic”.
