Bando Municipal del alcalde del Ayuntamiento de Vélez-Málaga due to the drought

As a consequence of the exceptional drought situation we are suffering, with the reservoir of La Viñuela at less than 10% of capacity and after the reduction in supply that we have been suffering for a few days, it is necessary to adopt measures of awareness and savings to reduce the volume of water used. The Town Hall of Velez-Malaga has issued an edict to reduce the demand of the urban water supply by at least 20% in order to guarantee the supply of water to the population during the summer.

The use of potable water is PROHIBITED in the following cases:

  • Irrigation of gardens, parks or green areas, both public and private.
  • Watering of golf courses.
  • Washing of streets, pavements, façades or any other surface, both public and private.
  • Filling or refilling private swimming pools.
  • Washing cars outside authorised establishments.
  • Ornamental fountains that do not have a closed water circuit, showers and public fountains.
  • Any other non-essential use.

Likewise, all citizens as well as those responsible for public and private facilities are asked to make a responsible, supportive and efficient use of drinking water, checking for possible leaks and applying other measures to avoid unnecessary water consumption, such as turning off the main water supply tap in homes and facilities at times or during periods when they are not occupied (schools, municipal buildings, businesses, private residences, etc.).

The Spanish Real Decreto 286/2022 of 19 April eliminates the obligation to wear a mask in general, leaving a large part of the criteria to be followed to individual responsibility.

With this new regulation, everyone can go to any space for any type of activity without being obliged to wear a mask, with the only exceptions contained in the Decree (socio-sanitary spaces, public transport, etc.). This same criterion is applicable to the different spaces in each building, given that the common areas of homeowners’ associations are not one of the exceptions. Therefore, the use of face masks in the common areas of buildings is no longer compulsory.

However, care should always be taken to act as prudently as possible, bearing in mind that the Covid-19 pandemic continues. Therefore, the Consejo General de Colegios Administradores de Fincas recommends that it is advisable to continue wearing a mask in cases of continuous contact in which it is not possible to maintain the safety distance (1.5 m). It is also advisable for people who, due to illness or any other cause, are particularly vulnerable, to continue wearing the mask.


Masks must be worn in all enclosed and open-air communal areas.

Examples of areas in which the use of masks is required in communities of owners:

  • Lifts and stairwells
  • Storage areas and meeting rooms
  • Garages and doorways
  • Gardens and passage areas

Measures included in Royal Decree Law 30/2021, of 23 December.
