Catalan authorities have announced that social-distancing rules for Barcelona and some surrounding towns will be relaxed on Tuesday, with the capacity limit set for cinemas, theaters, and other cultural venues loosened from 50 to 70%.

Other coronavirus restrictions remain, like the compulsory use of face-masks, limitations on smoking, and a prohibition on public and private gatherings of more than ten people.

Catalan officials explained that the relaxation of social-distancing measures comes as the new theater season starts.
