IMPORTANT update on new Valencia regulations regarding bar and restaurant openings
The internet has been lit up ever since the president of the Valencian Community, Ximo Puig, announced at 3pm yesterday (February 25) that the current coronavirus measures would gradually be relaxed from next month. Much confusion has abounded as to whether this means that bars and restaurants can reopen on Monday or Tuesday next week, but the matter has been cleared up by the publication of the official decree of the Generalitat Valenciana, which you can read in full on here the government’s website.
According to the official decree, the NEW measures come into play on March 1, so that bars, restaurants and cafes can open their terraces on Monday until 6pm. The regional government has reiterated that face masks must be worn at all times on these premises unless food or beverages are being consumed.
