Publication: Thursday, March 18, 2021 07:27

Since yesterday, March 17, at least 7 autonomous communities have been subject to the restrictions proposed by the government and ratified by the Interterritorial Health Council. Thus, in the Valencian Community, Euskadi, Navarra, Murcia, Madrid, Galicia and Extremadura (where this Friday 19 is a public holiday), a series of common rules are applied.

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, from this Wednesday until March 21 (later the measures of Holy Week will resume), there will be checks on the roads and the train and bus stations to avoid unjustified trips.

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.
