From next Monday, only four basic health zones in Madrid will continue with specific restrictions on mobility within the community, although the region as a whole remains closed on the perimeter of the December bridge.
The Ministry of Health announced on Friday that it would lift these measures in 11 zones and six municipalities from December 7, with only the maintenance of the limitations in four zones, where they will remain in force at least until December 14.
This was announced this Friday at a press conference by the Director of Public Health Elena Andradas and Deputy Minister Antonio Zapatero, who confirmed that the “downward trend” of coronavirus infections persists in the region, where they fell by more than 77% from the maximum peak in September.
These are the areas that, at the moment, have specific restrictions:
-Guzmán el Bueno (Madrid)
-La Elipa (Madrid)
-La Moraleja (Alcobendas)
On the other hand, from this Monday, December 7, the following basic health zones and the municipalities of Madrid will no longer have any limitations:
-Daroca, in Ciudad Lineal (Madrid)
-Vicálvaro-Artilleros, in the Vicálvaro district (Madrid)
– Cuzco, Alicante and Castilla la Nueva (Fuenlabrada)
– Sierra de Guadarrama, Collado Villalba Pueblo and Collado Villalba Estación (Collado Villalba)
-Colmenar de Oreja
-San Martín de Valdeiglesias
-Pelayos de la Presa
