As explained by the Minister of Health, Jesús Fernández, the curfew is maintained between 10 pm and 7 am and also the perimeter closure as well as a maximum of six people in the meetings.

The new measures announced will be maintained for the next ten days starting this Sunday, February 21.

Visits to nursing homes are opened “with caution”

One of the most outstanding novelties is the opening to visits in nursing homes, but with conditions. “We give a little life and relax so that our elders can have visits from their families,” explained the counselor.

However, visits will only be allowed in those centers that are COVID-free and in which there are “neither positives nor suspects”. In addition, residents and workers must have already administered both doses of the vaccine and the time for total immunization a posteriori must have elapsed.

The visitors will be tested for antigens, with a result in 15 minutes. A single person is allowed to visit, for one hour, twice a week in a safe environment, by appointment and better abroad. In the event that “the end of life” of the resident is foreseen, the visit of two people will be allowed.

In addition, the exits of the residents of the center will also be allowed, with the same conditions and with a minimum of 72 hours abroad, without maximum time. Non-delayed medical visits abroad are also authorized.

The area to which the elderly person leaves must be “stable”, that is, to a single address. Upon return, if the resident has symptoms, they will be evaluated by a healthcare professional to make decisions. If the tests are negative, there is no need to quarantine.

On the other hand, workers who join their position must test negative in diagnostic tests.

“The data allow us to make this decision,” said the counselor who, however, has asked “great caution.”

Restrictions in the Hospitality Industry are relaxed, game rooms are opened and there will be public in sports competitions

In addition, Health once again relaxes the restrictions in the Hospitality sector by allowing the capacity to be opened indoors to 50% and 75% abroad. There will be no bar service and customers must remain seated, both outside and inside during the service.

The ‘Responsible Leisure’ App is kept active in the voluntary period with a QR code that helps in tracking in the event of outbreaks in the area of ​​bars and restaurants. The counselor has ensured that “it works very well” and, despite the criticisms of the hoteliers, has assured that the decision to apply it was taken “by the hand of the Hospitality Industry”.

Once again, bingo halls, gambling halls and betting houses will open with a capacity of 50% inside. ´

Again the celebration of bullfighting shows with a 50% audience is allowed. Precisely, this public will be able to return to federated sports competitions with 30% indoors and 50% in open spaces.

Cinemas, theaters and auditoriums, children’s schools, hotels will be able to maintain up to 75% of their total capacity and in terms of supermarkets and shopping centers, they will be able to reach 50% of the capacity, without limits in small businesses.
