The Government is preparing a proposal of restrictions for Easter
The Ministry of Health and the regional governments have agreed to work with the Public Health Commission on the development of a document that includes restrictive measures to contain the coronavirus over the Easter period, traditionally the most celebrated week of the year, as reported by the Minister of Health herself, Carolina Darias.
"We are working in a coordinated manner through the Public Health Commission on a document that we hope to bring to the Council in the next couple of weeks, to agree upon by mutual agreement and that may serve to know what to do and what not to do over Easter," she said in the press conference after the Inter-territorial Council of the National Health System yesterday.
As Darias herself said, she has found "great sensitivity" on the part of the Inter-territorial Council as a whole to limit the measures facing these dates and maintain the data on the decline of Covid-19.
The minister has detailed that in yesterday’s meeting, and in that of last week, it has been agreed to ask the Public Health Commission for a document of proposals in relation to the restrictions to be adopted at Easter.
Darias has recognized the "unwanted increase of cases” that has occurred in other periods such as Christmas and Carnival, even though extra restrictions have been in place, as many people have disregarded them as though the pandemic is over.

For this reason, she hopes to reach a "common agreement" between all the members of the Inter-territorial Council, the regional Governments and health authorities of the country, so that there are shared measures approved for Semana Santa (Easter week), which if necessary, could be stricter than at other times before, as the common goal is to head out of restrictions all together, so it is crucial to avoid a spike in cases or fourth wave of the virus.
