The border closures will come into effect at midnight on Tuesday (into Wednesday) and will remain in place for a minimum of 14 days.  It will only be possible to enter or leave these municipalities for valid reasons.  These include professional and business reasons, medical appointments, legal appointments, and caring for dependants.  The Junta will modify the list of closed municipal borders every Monday and Thursday.

Curfew And Other Restrictions

  • All shops to close at 6pm
  • All bars, restaurants, and cafeterias to close at 6pm
  • Social gatherings limited to 4 people
