Spanish workers returned Monday to some factory and construction jobs but stores and services were still closed, and the government required office workers to keep working from home. #Coronavirus #Covid19 #CoronavirusUpdates
At the construction site of a major new development of exclusive flats, workers began preparing the ground for foundations.
As well as setting normal health and safety standards, the site managers have brought in COVID-19 guidelines.
Workers have been asked to keep a minimum of 2 metres distance whenever possible, masks have been distributed and site hygiene has been improved.
Site manager Bruno Vallesco Segura said he wanted his business to resume at full speed but acknowledged that many other sectors were suffering from the economic freeze and that some of his suppliers were being hit as well.
Spain’s lockdown is scheduled to end April 26th.
The country’s recorded coronavirus death toll hit more than 18,000 after 567 people succumbed to the virus in the past 24 hours.
