Hi all,

The Valencian regional government has published a new boletin this morning, introducing tighter restrictions to combat Covid-19 infection, which become effective from Thursday, 7 January until 31 January 2021 (see attached graphic):

-   Confinement of the Valencian regional border: Only properly justified trips are authorised

-   Limitation of circulation in nighttime hours (curfew): The mobility restrictions are now earlier, starting at 10 pm (until 6am)

-   Hospitality and restaurant limitations: Hospitality venues will close at 5pm and will be limited to a maximum of 4 people per table.

-   Smoking on terraces: It is now prohibited to smoke on terraces of hospitality venues, i.e. restaurants, bars.

-   Commercial capacity (shops, etc.): Reduced to 30% and for essential establishments the reduction is to 50% capacity.

-   Limitations of people in public and private spaces: This is maintained at a maximum of 6 people in family and friends' social gatherings (the advisory limit of these people being from only 2 households isn't mentioned).

Kind regards,

Kim

Hi John,

Hopefully, countries are learning from each other and acting accordingly.  I was shocked to hear that the new Covid-19 variant in the UK has now spread so extensively that NHS England believe as many as 1 in 50 people in England has it and the number rises to 1 in 30 people in London, which is shocking.  More than a week ago, Spain had its first case of the new variant in Gibraltar and a further 4 in Madrid a few days later, all people who had travelled from the UK, so personally, I'm glad to see the autonomous regions applying stricter measures.  I'm not sure it will prevent us from another lockdown, but fingers-crossed!

Stay safe,

Kim

I don't think you're selfish, John, we're all pretty fed up with this pandemic.  I have a property in the UK that I haven't seen for 18 months.  I'd love to get back to the UK to see my Dad, but he's 92 and even after isolating, I'd still be scared that I could infect him.  He had the first of the Pfizer/BioNtech jabs before Christmas and was supposed to have his second jab yesterday, but it was cancelled.  I understand the theory of why the UK government think "some" level of protection for more people is better than "full" cover for half that number, but BioNtech have stated that the vaccine was not designed to be administered in that way.

I'm sure you're aware that we had a very strict lockdown here in Spain from March to June - I didn't leave the house for 14 weeks - so what's being introduced in Comunidad Valenciana from tomorrow, while somewhat stricter, is actually much better than the national lockdown we endured last year.  Let's hope that increasing the restrictions now may prevent a full lockdown further down the line - fingers and toes crossed! :o)

Take care,

Kim

Thanks Kim for sharing information, we were in Spain  during the Lockdown  but funnily enough we found it more palatable ,perhaps it was the weather or perhaps it was Spain's review every 2 weeks ,which gave you a bit of hope ,since our arrival we had 4 days of tier 2 which meant hospitality  open with food until 8pm but unable to see family and friends as they were in tier 3 where no hospitality open hospitality was then closed until 2 weeks before xmas where all of Scotland went into a virtual lockdown for supposed 3 weeks ,on boxing day,it was then announced  lockdown until end of month ,meaning virtual lockdown for 3months less 2,5 weeks and doesn't help when you get clowns like Michael Gove stating this could last into March ,while 4 countries administer separately I feel at times they try to outdo one another with harsh restrictions, I certainly never in my worst nightmares did I expect this after coming out of lockdown in Spain

Are you calling Gove a clown because he said it could last to March? I can see it lasting longer in the UK, a lot of the blame for that will be due to the lack of adherence by so many to the lockdowns.

Yes you have that correct , marble mouthed Gove ,who wants to be told in the first week of January  ,lockdown  could go on until mid March ,you might be happy with lockdown but I'm Not ,during the lockdown in Spain  ,the Spanish government reviewed the situation every 2 weeks  ,I'd rather hear that than being told it may last until mid March
