The Community of Madrid updates its measures to fight the virus this Friday, where it is expected that the restrictions will be removed in some basic health zones and municipalities, which will return to normal mobility.

Currently, the region maintains a curfew at 11:00 p.m. and there are no plans for it to be delayed at this time. On the other hand, private meetings at home and in private spaces with non-cohabiting persons are prohibited.

If they take place in public space, these meetings can be, but with a maximum of four people. This limit will be six people if they take place on the terrace of a hotel establishment.

Hotel and restaurant establishments must close by 11:00 p.m. at the latest. Likewise, after 10:00 p.m., new customers will no longer be able to enter. Home services, on the other hand, can be performed until midnight.

Mobility restrictions

The Community of Madrid will announce this Friday in how many basic health zones it will maintain mobility restrictions and whether it adds new ones to perimeter closures. At present, containment is applied in a total of 25 basic health zones and eight municipalities where entry and exit of these areas is not allowed without proof.

In 23 of these areas and the eight municipalities, the mobility restriction will last at least until next Monday, March 1. This was established by the Ministry of Health last Friday, when it was also announced that 31 basic health zones and seven localities no longer had containment, which significantly reduced the affected areas of Madrid.

Despite this, 707,000 inhabitants of Madrid are affected by the current restrictions, which represents 11% of the total population of the region.
