Some councils have cancelled all public events, others have cancelled some; some councils have instigated their own local emergency protocols, and others have provided phone numbers for the public to call in for assistance or to advise of incidents. Anyone thinking of doing anything, or going anywhere, would be advised to check with their own Ayuntamiento’s social media (most councils have a twitter and/or Facebook account) to see what applies in their own areas over the next few days.
