Likewise, the community advances the curfew at 22:00 and limits meetings to four people, both in the private and public spheres, unless they are cohabiting. Finally, from Friday to Saturday, the non-essential activity will close at 6:00 p.m., the rest of the week it can remain open until 8:00 p.m. as before. Time exceptions for culture and sports will be maintained.
In the last fifteen days, Aragón has doubled the weekly accumulated incidence, reaching 329 cases per 100,000 inhabitants that are notified today.
