Breaking News – Castilla-La Mancha to Reopen Hospitality Establishments and Allow Travel Between Municipalities.
THE Castilla-La Mancha Government will allow hospitality establishments to reopen on Friday, February 12 until 9pm – with a third of the capacity – although the curfew is maintained at 10pm.
In an announcement made today (February 11) by the region’s Minister of Health Jesús Fernández Sanz, that could prove positive for the rest of the country, Sanz has also said that they will reopen large commercial areas and will allow travel between municipalities and provinces of the community, although residents will still require ‘justified reasons’ to leave the region.
However, these measures will not come into place for three municipalities: Fuensalida, Torrijos and Casarrubios del Monte, in the province of Toledo due to high Covid figures.
The Minister of Health also said that libraries, museums and archives, gyms and leisure centres will be able to open, again with a third of the capacity, but access to care homes or elderly residences is not yet allowed.
The new measures, which have been adopted due to a decrease in Covid-19 both in the accumulated incidence and in the occupation of hospital beds and ICUs, will be in force for a period of 10 days from this Friday, February 12.
Curfew – maintained from 10pm.
Social gatherings – limited to a maximum of six people.
Perimeter confinement – residents of Castilla-La Mancha may move freely within the entire territory of the community, although they may not leave the region to go to other autonomous communities, except for justifiable reasons.
