Regions relax certain restrictions: Group numbers, opening times, meetings in private homes
12 April 2021 @ 12:18

VARIOUS restrictions in several regions in Spain have been lifted or eased since Saturday where contagion has slowed down and in light of increased optimism over the vaccine roll-out being accelerated.

Some have opted to keep all limitations in place until the end of the 'State of Alarm', due to be over on May 9, and few, at present, have reopened their regional borders.

Andalucía has maintained the restrictions it had in place since before Easter, including regional border closure and limits on travelling between provinces; groups of up to six people are allowed to meet, except inside bar and restaurant premises, where the maximum is four to a table; all shops, bars, eateries, and other services and activities are permitted to open until 22.30, but not beyond, with the exception of towns with more than 1,000 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants (1% of the population), a situation that currently includes the provincial capital cities of Córdoba, Málaga, Huelva, Jaén and Sevilla.

In towns in Andalucía on alert level 2 or 3, restaurants are permitted to make home deliveries up to 23.30, subject to last orders at 22.30.

The curfew remains from 23.00 to 06.00, although the regional government has urged residents to 'voluntarily' stay at home beyond 20.00.

The Balearic Islands will remain shut to anyone from outside them until today Monday (April 12), although travelling between islands is allowed. 

Social gatherings of up to four people in inside spaces, and six in outdoor areas, are permitted on the islands of Formentera and Menorca; in Ibiza and Mallorca, up to four people can meet, indoors or outdoors, from a maximum of two households, but nobody is allowed to meet anyone in a private home, where only members of the same household are permitted.

Bars and restaurants in Mallorca and Ibiza are still banned from opening their inside areas and can only operate using their outdoor terraces, provided these are shut by 17.00; in Menorca and Formentera, they can open until 18.00, inside and out, but with numbers limited in indoor parts.

The curfew in the region remains from 22.00 to 06.00.
