This means each regional government is in charge of implementing its own restrictions. Regions can also restrict the entrance to and exit from their territories.
  • An obligatory curfew at a national level has also been introduced, which limits nighttime movement for the entire country from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., except for justified reasons.
  • The opening of tourist accommodation depends on the decisions made by the regional authorities.
  • Gatherings in public or private spaces are limited to 6 people.
