The Councilor for Citizen Security, Lluís Sagarra, states that “from the City Council and in collaboration with the Mossos d’Esquadra we will ensure that it is complied with. We remember that this is done so that everything goes well, so that we can get out of this nightmare that is the pandemic as soon as possible and, therefore, we ask for the maximum collaboration from all the citizens ”.
