At dawn from this Saturday to this Sunday the state of alarm declines throughout the country, so the communities are already setting the stage and proposing the measures they propose to have in force by then.

Also there, the meetings that take place both in public and private spaces will continue to be limited, and there will also be controls in airports and ports or capacity limits in the temples.
The resolution of the magistrates has had three individual votes in favor and two against, as the court has advanced. This Wednesday the Government met urgently after the pronouncement of this Court declaring “inadmissible” the request for an extension of the measures approved today, as it is a set of mere proposals and not measures already adopted.
