Next Saturday the weekly market will reopen; a reopening that must be carried out - indicated the mayor of the area, Bartolo Hernández - with the maximum guarantees of security and complying with the order of the Ministry and the Department of Markets.
For this reason, the City Council has been working on a reopening plan that must be applied while the coronavirus health crisis lasts and that contemplates, among other measures, a maximum capacity of 300 people within the premises and a distance between upper posts at five meters.
In addition, until further notice, only the food stands, plant nursery and restaurant (exclusively with terrace service reduced to 50%) may be installed. Regarding buyers, only two entrances will be enabled (one for access and one for exit).
The entrance to the market premises will be made individually and before entering, the body temperature will be taken and a mask and a pair of gloves will be delivered, if necessary, which must also be cleaned with a hydroalcoholic solution, as measured which will also be applicable to sellers.
In the same way, all people who come to the market will receive a card with a number that they must return at the exit in order to control the number of people. Regarding the measures that affect merchants, during assembly and disassembly they must sanitize the elements of their stall.
The distance between the vendors of the same stall will be a minimum of 2 meters and they can only operate with one client.
In addition, they must put elements between the genre and the buyers to avoid that they can manipulate it. Apart from these measures, it is essential that the necessary safety distance of two meters is also applied.
Once the market is finished, the site will be sanitized, during which time only merchants and cleaning service operators will be able to stay inside.
