The Spanish government has announced the regions that can move to a new phase of the government’s coronavirus de-escalation plan.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday evening, Health Minister Salvador Illa said that “from Monday, 1st June 70% of the population will be in Phase 2, a little more than 32 million people, 30% will be in Phase 1, around 15 million people, and 45,000 people in Phase 3.”

The Valencian Community, Malaga, Granada, Ciudad Real, Albacete, Toledo and some territories of Castilla y León and Catalonia will move to phase 2 of the de-escalation plan next Monday.

Four islands of the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands will move to phase 3 with the rest of Spain will remain in phase 1. 

This means that for our region, social gatherings are expanded to 15 people, restaurants with limited capacity can begin to open and hours for physical activity are eliminated (except one reserved for the elderly). Regions will be able to decide whether classes should restart in schools, beaches, cinemas and shopping centers will also open.

Hotels can reopen their public and common areas which are currently closed.

This is the first phase that the whole of the Valencian Community carries out as a block, after the setback with some areas did not move to Phase 1 at the same time. 

The Madrid regional government did not request to move to Phase 2 but did ask the central government for permission to ease more of the lockdown restrictions.
