The councilor for Security, Francisco Arce, reports that the residents of Nerja and Maro are scrupulously complying with the confinement order that establishes the state of alarm decreed by the government to try to control the expansion of the coronavirus. "Proof of this is that the Local Police has only made four complaints in these four days, much less than other nearby municipalities."
The Nerja Local Police and the Civil Guard are carrying out controls throughout the municipality with the intention of informing citizens of restrictions on their movements, although in these four cases, two from establishments and two from individuals, have been forced to make complaints. Civil Protection is broadcasting messages over the public address system, especially through the urbanizations and suburbs, in Spanish, English and Swedish. "We should all congratulate ourselves on this exemplary citizen behavior, but we should not relax, because compliance with these measures prevents possible contagion from occurring," the councilman concluded.
Remember that you can only leave the house to go to work, to shop, to a medical center or to take care of a dependent person. Also for domestic needs such as littering or taking the dog out. All these activities must be carried out individually, unless accompanied by the disabled, minors, the elderly, or for just cause. Whoever fails to comply with the restrictions set by the state of alarm may receive administrative sanctions of between 601 and 30,000 euros or even prison, in extreme cases of citizen disobedience.
