Spain has been in a state of alarm with the Covid-19 pandemic but just under a month ago many of these restrictions were lifted. The people of Spain had curfews, limited meeting up with others and now the states have all got new regulations. Many had lifted guidance from May 8th unless in a very high risk zone. But for some states such as Valencia they are still awaiting 2 more days until their rules will change so they can enjoy from June 8th:

– Diners at tables are, however, limited to 10.
– Nightlife can reopen from next week with closing time at 2am, and a capacity restriction of 50% inside, but 100% outside.
– There are no longer capacity limits in places of worship.

Whereas in Madrid, there is no curfew nor any lockdown in place in the region. Hospitality venues can open from 6am to 1am, with eight diners permitted at tables outside and six inside. People can meet in their homes, but the government advises against this. Capacity in bars and restaurants is at 50% inside and 75% outside. Consumption at the bar is prohibited, and capacity in malls, cinemas and theatres at 75%.

For the people of the Balearic Islands The Supreme Court has annulled the night-time curfew and limits on social meetings in the region. The Balearics is currently not requiring coronavirus tests from vaccinated Spanish tourists, nor from domestic visitors traveling from regions with an incidence below 60 cases per 100,000 inhabitants over 14 days. Hospitality venues on Mallorca and Ibiza cannot open their indoor spaces, while outdoor areas are limited to four people – Menorca and Formentera are permitting four inside and six outside. Bars and restaurants must close at 10.30pm.

The next few weeks will allow Spain to get back to a new normal. Summer is an important time for Spain but with no tourists just yet we will see what happens over the next few weeks.
