However, the evolution of the rate of contagion will continue to be analyzed and, if favorable, the different alternatives that could enable the provision of some type of leisure outlets with restricted modalities will be evaluated. These decisions will be agreed with the respective municipal mayors of each of the respective territories, “they concluded in writing.
