In an official press release, the government announces new measures and the passage to phase 3 of the deconfinement plan, starting this Monday, July 20, 2020 at midnight.

Here are the measures that come into effect this Monday, July 20:

  • Tourist establishments will be allowed to use 100% of their accommodation capacity. On the other hand, common areas such as swimming pools, restaurants, fitness rooms… will not be allowed to exceed 50% of their capacity.
  • Public passenger transport, urban and interurban, will be allowed to reach 75% of its capacity under specific conditions to be announced.
  • Official sports competitions will be allowed, but behind closed doors.
  • Events and gatherings with a maximum of 20 people will be allowed.
  • Reopening of cultural centres, museums, libraries, monuments, without exceeding 50% of their capacity.

All other restrictions remain in force, such as the prohibition of weddings, funeral ceremonies, cinemas, public swimming pools, etc.

The government calls on citizens to be extremely vigilant and to strictly respect the wearing of masks, distancing and hygiene measures, knowing that summer activities and those of Aid Al Adha are favourable to the spread of the virus.

The government also announced that in case of the emergence of clusters, any industrial, commercial, service or tourist unit will be closed. And that any neighbourhood or area will be placed under strict quarantine if necessary and their accesses tightly closed in both directions.
