Bars, restaurants and cafes will stay closed until 1st March. The use of masks becomes obligatory when exercising in urban areas, including parks and beaches. Effective from 1 Feb 2021
Don’t forget……the boundary closure of these towns for the weekend.
Ximo Puig has announced the current restrictions will be extended until the 1st March. Below a recap of the current restrictions.
Bars and restaurants to remain closed. Take away/delivery only.
Meetings in households can only be with co habitants – two households can no longer meet in someone’s home. Exception is for single occupant households who can form a support bubble with one other household to fend of loneliness.
Outside of your home max two people from different households can meet – both inside buildings and outside. This does not mean going to someone else’s house. I refer to non domicile buildings and spaces.
Meetings for work, for institutions and educations are exempt. So are care for vulnerable people (elderly and young), couples who do not live together and people who live alone.
Perimeter closure from 3pm Fridays until 6am Mondays of cities with over 50 000 inhabitants. (València, Alacant, Elx, Castelló, Torrevieja, Torrent, Orihuela, Gandia, Paterna, Benidorm, Sagunt, Alcoi, Sant Vicent del Raspeig, Elda-Petrer and Vila-real)
Mask use is mandatory while practicing sport in green spaces in town and on the beach. But please note this is only applicable between 10am and 7pm. So, if you carry out a sport activity outside of these hours masks are not mandatory.
NEW: Update from the British Embassy.
We have recently received a letter from the British Embassy, part of which says:
I also wanted to take advantage of this email to send some information about vaccines as I know that many of you are being asked about the vaccine roll out in Spain. The most important point is the Spain has said that it will offer the vaccine to everyone who lives in Spain as they consider this to be a public health issue.
For British nationals resident in Spain with public healthcare cover: These British nationals will be contacted by their health centre when it´s their turn according to Spain´s vaccination roll out. Note that Spain´s roll out is currently slower than the UK´s and we understand the next group to be contacted will be the over 80s.
For British nationals resident in Spain with private healthcare cover: These British nationals should contact their private healthcare provider first. We understand that the public healthcare authorities will liaise with the private providers to ensure that everyone receives a vaccine. The Spanish government has said that the vaccine will be available to everyone who lives in Spain and wishes to receive it, according to their vaccine roll-out programme.

Group activities this week
PLEASE REMEMBER, AT ANY GROUP MEETING, TO FOLLOW SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDLINES.
Once again, this area has entered a restricted situation. The Photography and Walking Football groups have both had to close again.
It seems likely there will be little change this side of the new year; possible even into late spring of 2021.
