- The measures include the suspension of extra-curricular activities, the closure of parks and gardens at night and the reinforcement of disinfection
The Mayor of Redován, Nely Ruiz, has announced this morning the reinforcement of the health measures against Covid-19, in view of the increase in the number of positive cases in the municipality. In this way, and from Saturday 19 September, “we will proceed to carry out several urgent and extraordinary measures such as the closure of municipal parks and green areas, which will not be accessible from 21:00 until the morning of the next day,” explained the first mayor.
Likewise, the cleaning and disinfection of streets and public spaces of great affluence will be intensified, both in the municipality of Redován and in its neighbourhoods, in order to continue the work of preventing contagion of Covid-19. Similarly, and in consensus with the educational centres, Ruiz explained that “it has been decided to temporarily suspend extra-curricular activities, reducing the time of contact between schoolchildren and thus reducing the possibility of contagion”.
In this sense the Mayoress has informed, through the Department of Public Health of Orihuela, of the confinement of a second class of Infant Education in the CEIP Sagrados Corazones of the municipality in the 4 year old classroom, which joins the one confirmed yesterday in the same centre, of five years, after the detection of a positive case among the students. Both classes are under the protocols and measures of action necessary to contain the situation.
The first councillor asked for “patience” from the population and that “security measures be taken to prevent them from having to be even tougher in the face of a new increase in cases”. Ruiz stressed the need to comply with health measures, such as the obligatory use of masks at all times, maintaining a safe distance and correct hand hygiene.
