Good news: Regions say NO to 8pm curfew over Easter
The Government and the autonomous communities have decided today (Wednesday) within the Inter-territorial Council of the National Health System, to reject any modification to the restrictions for Easter and not to apply any changes to the time of the curfew or the closure of non-essential activities.
Throughout the day different sources confirmed that the Minister of Health, Carolina Darias, had contacted Health Councillors from various different autonomous communities to probe the possibility of changing the curfew to 8pm for the next two weeks during Easter.
However, in the Inter-territorial Council this afternoon it has not been agreed to include any new measures on schedules in relation to the curfew and non-essential activity. The document that was agreed a few weeks ago established 11:00 pm as the latest deadline for the curfew on these dates, which most, including the Canary Islands have set at 10:00pm
The Interior Minister, Fernando Grande-Marlaska, was present at this Wednesday's meeting, and has indicated to the regions the need to control the measures that emerge from this shared document of actions over Easter.
In addition, several of the Autonomous Communities have requested an exhaustive control of the borders after criticizing the Government for allowing foreign tourism but not mobility between different autonomies. Here, Marlaska defended the controls that already exist at airports.
