From Monday, the whole of the Valencian Community (Comunitat Valenciana) joins us here in area of Marina Baixa and will enter phase 1 of the de-escalation plan. 

During phase 1, the social restrictions for the containment of the Covid-19 are made more flexible and possibilities are also opened up for economic activity: small shops, hotels, terraces, libraries and museums return with limitations. in addition, meetings of up to ten people are allowed.

This means that what applies currently in our area now also is allowed across the region.

The movement of the entire Costa Blanca to Phase 1 also means that from this Monday the people from our province of Alicante can now move between municipalities (council areas).

The Valencian Business Confederation (CEV) has said that the Spanish Government has agreed to review the situation of Alicante-Elche airport, which had been left out of the list of Spanish airports that will be able to host international flights while the restrictive measures of the 'State of Alarm' are in place.

An order from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda published by the BOE (official government papers) this Friday establishes in its article 3 that only five Spanish airports will be able to receive international flights in the coming weeks. The order takes effect this from today, Saturday, and will be in effect until May 24.
