Lusa - Business News - Cabo Verde: Beaches reopen with restrictions, no vendors




Praia,May 25,2020(Lusa)-Some beaches in Cape Verde are working with opening and closing times, with no street vendors and up to eight family members together, but access to more than fifty beaches will remain totally banned due to Covid-19.

The measures are contained in the new regulation on access to beaches and maritime bathing areas, approved by the Cape Verdean Maritime Port Institute, which applies to the eight inhabited islands that are no longer in a state of emergency, thus allowing a return to the beaches after two months but with various restrictions.

Out of a total of 99 beaches - except for the island of Santiago, which remains in a state of emergency and therefore maintains all the restrictive measures in force since 29 March - 36 are now operating for general use, but with opening hours ranging from 06:00 to 08:00 and closing at 18:00, in addition to various conditions of access. These opening hours also apply to six other beaches that can be used only for nautical sports activities.

Another 57 beaches, including all 17 on the island of Boa Vista, which only on Thursday ceased to have active cases of Covid-19, and another 40 in Santo Antão, São Vicente, São Nicolau, Sal, Maio, Fogo and Brava will remain totally prohibited.

Generally speaking, swimming and going in the water will be allowed again, as long as they respect the instructions of the authorities and the rules of social distancing of at least two meters. Also, trips to beaches for leisure fishing, recreational fishing and underwater fishing, as well as physical and sport activities in individual mode, or nautical sports activities without professional competitive context and without physical contact are allowed again.

"These rules, which will last as long as there are risks of contagion, aim to establish styles of conduct and use of the beaches and maritime bathing areas, in a pleasant and safe way, thus allowing people to live with viruses in conditions of lower risk," justifies the regulation, which came into force on 23 May and which provides for its own signage with references to Covid-19 to be placed next to the sand.

With this regulation, "any playful, sporting or musical activities" are forbidden on all beaches, which may "give rise to large agglomerations", such as the itinerant sale of drinks and food, picnics, outings, parties or gatherings, but also the use of sound equipment and collective tents, or the practice of collective games, among others.

It also defines as conditions of using reopened beaches but with prohibitions, among others, "to respect the minimum social distance of two meters between bathers, both in the sand and in the water", to maintain "minimum distances between the sun umbrellas of bathers of at least five meters" and "to limit the concentration of relatives to a maximum number of eight people".

This regulation, explained in the document, aims to "allow access to users who demand the beaches and maritime bathing areas for therapeutic and leisure purposes, subject to compliance with health protection standards".

The surveillance of the restrictions will be ensured by the National Maritime Authority, the National Police, the Maritime Police and lifeguards.

Cape Verde has recorded 380 cases of Covid-19 since March 19, but only the island of Santiago still has active cases (321). Three patients have died, two infected foreign tourists have returned to their home countries, and 155 patients have recovered, so 220 cases remain active, all in isolation.

In Africa, there are 3,246 confirmed deaths in more than 107,000 infected in 54 countries, according to the most recent statistics about the pandemic in that continent.

Worldwide, according to an AFP news agency report, the Covid-19 pandemic has claimed more than 343,000 lives and infected more than 5.3 million people in 196 countries and territories.
