Spain’s has has made a preliminary agreement with the regions to extend the current coronavirus restrictions on social activity over Easter week.
Regions will remain under a perimeter lockdown, meaning no one can enter or leave without a justified reason, such as going to work.
The regions also agreed to set a curfew between 10pm and 6am during Easter week and to ban large events where crowds form, meaning Spain’s Easter processions are likely to be cancelled.
Other measures include a four-person limit on social gatherings in both private and public spaces, regardless of whether they take place indoors or outdoors, and recommendations against members of different households gathering inside the home or other indoor spaces.
Traditionally, many who own second homes in this area come from Madrid to enjoy an Easter break. Hopefully, they will stay away this year because the incidence of cases in Madrid (253 per 100,000) is the highest of all the regions on the mainland.
