      Andorra usually follows major Spanish policy decisions despite being an independent microstate high in the Pyrenees between Spain and France. Andorra announced its first coronavirus case on March 2 and now has an official total of 16 cases and a number of suspected cases. Spain has far more cases and on Monday closed its borders to everyone except Spanish residents returning home and those with a valid reason to travel.

            The Government decides that the supply of food can only be done by one person per family unit
            • Saturday, March 21, 2020

            The Council of Ministers has also lifted the decree on Saturday, in which the displacement for the supply of essential products (food, fuel, pharmacy) will be allowed only by one individual from each family nucleus. This precautionary measure will prevent agglomerations and queues at supermarkets and / or retailers of essential products, avoiding as much as possible social contact and thus the spread of COVID-19.
            The Decree provides that establishments in the food sector with direct service to the public, must guarantee a maximum capacity of 30%, in accordance with the useful area dedicated to the public, controlled by the establishment itself. It will be necessary to ensure that people keep a minimum distance of one meter (preferably two meters) between them inside and outside the trade.
            Whenever possible, home delivery should be encouraged and recommended and policies of schedules should be avoided and at the same time facilitate supply to the most vulnerable groups. In this sense, the Decree also contemplates the recommendation that the shops be open an hour earlier, dedicating the sale to the most vulnerable groups.
            Shops and disposable soaps should always be available at shops, additional disinfection systems (alcohol-based disinfectants) may be used as additional prevention, but may not replace hand washing with soap and water.
            Credit card purchases are strongly recommended to avoid cross-contamination with any source of pollution, such as money, cell phones and other utensils.
            Food handlers must wear gloves and change them as often as necessary, as they can be a source of cross-contamination and transmit false security, as dirt accumulates with regular use. It is also mandatory to provide disposable gloves to customers as well.
            Persons with symptoms of fever or fever should stay home and not go to the workplace or shopping centers and inform their referring GP or call 116 according to the established protocol.
            It will be necessary to increase and increase the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting the entire establishment, paying special attention to the circulation areas of the customers.
            Home, online and correspondence services are limited to the stores selling food and pharmacy products.

                      Apologies - the above post has been made in the wrong place. The correct figure for Andorra is 267 Cases.


                      Andorra has a population of 76,000. Andorra has 267 cases and added 43 new cases yesterday. Andorra seems on pace to add 2000 to 8000 cases. If Andorra matched the Diamond Princess they would have 14,000 cases.

                            Andorra accumulates 12 deaths from Covid-19 after registering four on Tuesday, the minister spokesman, Eric Jover, has reported in the appearance to take stock of the coronavirus health emergency.

                            As explained by the Minister of Health, Joan Mart?nez Benazet, the majority of deaths are from people over 80 years old, although the death of a middle-aged person has also been recorded.

                            On the other hand, 10 patients have been discharged since the health emergency began; There are also a total of 376 positive cases, of which 354 are still active.

                            In economic terms, Eric Jover has reported that since Monday, 148 more requests for help have been received from companies and the self-employed, and there are already 993 forms.

                            At this point, Jover has assured that the team that has to review them has been strengthened to speed up the procedures and thus "facilitate access to aid."

                            As for people who have lost their jobs, the Government has received a total of 324 people, 76% of whom had contracts related to the tourist season.

                            153 of the people have been contacted to analyze that the dismissal had been made in accordance with the law, and in 21 cases it has not been so: at this point, Jover has warned that the labor inspection service will give the tools to these unemployed so that they can either regain their position or receive compensation.
                            Cirque du Soleil suspends the show

                            Another consequence of the health emergency is the suspension by Cirque du Soleil of the show that it had to offer during the month of July in the Principality of Andorra.

                            As reported by Andorra Turisme through a press release, the Canadian company has explained that, with the current situation, it does not have "the human resources necessary to offer a show with guarantees".

                            "Given the complexity of this type of show, it is impossible, in the current unemployment situation and taking into account the deadlines for the execution of this project, to guarantee the artists' rehearsals, both for the quality and for the safety of themselves", exposes the statement, so efforts are focused on putting on the show in the summer of 2021.
