The agreed measures allow travel to visit family only but no leisure trips, with regional perimeter closures to be decided by the individual regions.
Travel will be permitted between December 23rd and January 6th across Spain, but only for family visits.
Spanish citizens must adequately justify that they are travelling for, among other reasons, meeting with "relatives or close friends" and are not permitted to travel for leisure or holiday purposes.
The number of people permitted to meet rises from six to 10 only on Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
According to Worldometer, 1,693,591 cases of Covid-19 were confirmed in Spain so far. 46,038 people passed away since the pandemic reached the country.
As we reported earlier, the Italian government introduced a ban on traveling between regions all over the country; the restrictions will be introduced on December 21 and lifted on January 6.
Besides, on December 25-26 and January 1, all traffic between municipalities will be restricted, too; the only exclusion will be made for movements motivated by proven needs of service or health concerns.
