Mr Puig also confirmed that the borders of the Valencian Community will remain closed, and that he is extending this measure to include municipality confinement for towns and cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants at the weekends and on holidays.
The towns specified by the Generalitat are Valencia, Alacant, Elche, Castello, Torrevieja, Torrent, Orihuela, Gandia, Paterna, Benidorm, Sagunt, Alcoy, Sant Vincent del Raspeig, Elda-Petrer and Vila-Real.
