The Official State Gazette has published an Order of the Ministry of Health declaring the suspension of opening to the public of hotels and similar establishments, tourist accommodation and other short-stay, due to the state of alarm decreed for the management of the health crisis situation caused by COVID-19.
The Order specifies that it is allowed to keep open the public the establishments that host clients who, at the time of declaration of the state of alarm, are housed in a stable and seasonal manner, provided that their occupants have the infrastructure, in their own residential spaces , to be able to carry out the activities of first necessity in the terms established by the Royal Decree declaring the state of alarm. However, these establishments will not be able to admit new customers until the suspension ends.
The closure of the accommodations will take place at the moment in which the establishment does not have clients to whom it must attend and, in any case, within a maximum period of seven calendar days from the entry into force of this regulation. The provision of surveillance, security and maintenance services in these establishments is permitted.
