The alarm state ends. From midnight this Saturday to Sunday May 9, this legal measure will disappear and, with it, the perimeter closures in most of the autonomous communities.
Can we then go to other communities from this Sunday? In principle, yes, but with nuances in the case of the Canary Islands and Balearic Islands.
In the Balearic Islands, justice has approved health restrictions approved by the government, including measures to control the transit of domestic travelers through ports and airports on the islands.
In the case of the Canary Islands, the regional government wants the limitations it had already applied to remain in force, including the limitation of entry and exit from the islands to alert levels 3 and 4 – none for the moment-, as well as mandatory checks at ports and airports. However, the continuation of its current measures is awaiting judicial ratification by the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islands.
The perimeter closures of the rest of the Autonomous Territories that until now had them will end with the state of alert, including that of Euskadi, despite the fact that the region wished to maintain it, since the Superior Court of Justice l ‘has forbidden.
Thus, in principle, it will be possible to travel between autonomies – undergoing the relevant diagnostic tests, in the case of the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands – from this Sunday, without prejudice to the fact that some territories maintain smaller confined areas, as in the case of Madrid – that it no longer had an autonomous closure in force – that it wanted to maintain mobility restrictions in basic health zones.
In all cases, it is recommended to avoid unnecessary travel and to comply at all times with preventive measures against coronaviruses: mask, safety distance, correct ventilation and hygiene.
