Parts of Spain have entered Phase 3 of the de-escalation of lockdown, as the country recovers from the spread of Covid-19.
After one of the strictest lockdowns in Europe, residents of certain regions of Spain will now be able to:
- Visit shops and shopping centres (now 50% capacity). There will be staggered opening timetables and hand sanitisers for staff, and PPE if it’s impossible to keep 2m of social distancing.
- Visit a street market – although customers can’t touch products.
- Gather in groups of 20 – with PPE worn if indoors.
- Have a wedding (with no more than 150 guests outdoors, and 75 indoors)
- Visit a bar, cafe or restaurant (at 50% capacity). Booking systems will be advised for groups, and social distancing must be observed. Outdoor terraces can open at 75% capacity.
- Visit a museum, gallery or library (all 50% capacity).
- Attend a concert (so long as social distancing can be observed). For outdoor events, people must be seated and the maximum number of attendees is 80.
Which regions are in Phase 3, you ask?
Galicia, Asturias, Cantabria, Basque Country, La Rioja, Navarre, Aragon, Extremadura, Andalucia, Murcia, Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, Gran Canaria, La Palma, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.
The rest of the country (including Madrid and Barcelona) is still in Phase 2.
