Coronavirus restrictions in Catalonia, Andalusia, Galicia, Madrid and the rest of the CCAA

Publication: Friday, March 19, 2021 7:25 AM

This Friday, the Father’s Day Bridge began, whereby seven Autonomous Communities are subject to the new restrictions proposed by the government, which will also apply to Easter. Thus, the regions affected on March 19 are the Valencian Community, Euskadi, Navarre, Murcia, Madrid, Galicia and Extremadura.

First, the curfew must be from 11:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. (regions can choose to bring it forward by one hour, as is the case in the Valencian Community). Meetings in public and open spaces are for a maximum of six people. In closed public spaces, 4; and in private spaces, like a house, this cannot be done.

Another fundamental measure of the health deal concerns the closure of the perimeter, despite the fact that Madrid opposed it and even appealed to the court. Thus, until next March 21 (later Holy Week measures will resume), there will be checks on roads and train and bus stations to avoid unjustified travel.

However, these measures represent a general framework in which the autonomous communities still have a margin of decision. As Health Minister Carolina Darias has said, this Interterritorial Council plan “sets the minimum”, so restrictions could tighten further if the region in question likes it.
