From the executive, they recall that Royal Decree 926/2020 of October 25 provides that the autonomous communities must decree a compulsory curfew between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m., which can advance or delay it by up to an hour.
In other words, the curfew can start at 10 p.m. at the earliest and end at 7 a.m. at the latest. However, Castilla y León has announced that it will advance the curfew to 8:00 p.m.
The reason? According to the vice-chairman of the board, Francisco Igea, the government allows them to limit the curfew during the night. “According to our legal services, the night hours go from sunset to sunrise. At this time, at 8:00 p.m., it’s sunset”, defends Igea.
