Confinement measures lifted in seven Segrià county towns
Travel restrictions no longer in place while bars, restaurants, and shops can now open at 50% capacity
The Catalan government has lifted the confinement measures put in place in Lleida and six other Segrià county towns in western Catalonia to limit the spread of Covid-19.
Travel restrictions will no longer be in place from Thursday at 4 pm, as health minister Alba Vergés explained on Wednesday evening.
Shops will be able to open at 50% capacity, as will bars and restaurants – with customers only be permitted to sit in outdoor dining areas – although they will still have to close at midnight at the latest.
Gatherings of over 10 people remain prohibited.
Meanwhile, the government has announced that the Covid restrictions already in place in the Barcelona metropolitan area will be enforced in the coastal towns of Castelldefels and Gavà, south of the Catalan capital, too.
