On Saturday evening the Spanish government published an updated version of restrictions governing Phases 0 to 2 of de-escalation in its official state bulletin (BOE), which will come into effect from Monday May 18.
THEY include updates to Phases 0, 1 and 2 of de-escalation. For territories in Phase 0, which include Madrid, Barcelona and some areas of Castilla and Leon, the government has decided to ease some restrictions in a bid to meet them half way. Now entitled Phase 0.5, those areas denied access to Phase 1, can allow businesses of less than 400 sq metres in size to open without previous appointments. However, they cannot open bar/restaurant terraces, nor can people meet in groups of up to 10.
Areas allowed to progress to Phase 1 of de-escalation, which now include Malaga, Granada and all of Valencia, as well as those who moved to Phase 1 last week, can now engage in fishing/hunting activities. Businesses of more than 400 sq metres are also permitted to open, with restrictions and safety measures imposed to ensure social distancing measures are respected.
Territories entering Phase 2 of de-escalation, which include Formentera in the Baleares Island and the Canary Islands of La Graciosa, El Hierro and La Gomera, will enjoy greater freedom.
In Phase 2, there will be more flexibility for residents to go out for walks or do a sports activity, which can now be done at almost any time of the day, except for the timetabled hours for the over 70s (between 10am and 12pm and between 7pm and 8pm).
The bulletin also outlines other restrictions that can be lifted in Phase 2 of de-escalation. These include:
