Under Government Consideration – Tighter curfews and reduction of social gathering numbers.

Despite being one of the communities with the best data, it is true that the Valencian Community has seen increases in cases during the last 7 days, reaching record figures higher than those in spring 2020.

That is why, as in other communities, the idea of ​​imposing a curfew is being considered by the Generalitat. According to Cadena Ser, they are seriously studying the possibility of applying this new restriction in the Valencian Community.

Yesterday afternoon Ximo Puig and Ana Barceló held a meeting where the idea was reinforced after analysing the latest data. Apparently, the intention is to be able to control the situation but with minimal financial repercussions on the economy.

Puig said that they are betting on a curfew similar to that of Belgium, from 12 at night to 5am ( some sources say 6am) in the morning. The hospitality sector would be the one with the worst stoppage since it would mean reducing the closing time again from 1.00 am to midnight or earlier.

Another measure that is being considered, (more details are unknown) is the reduction in the number of people who can meet in private and public circles. This is one of the restrictions that have been put into practice in other cities and communities and it would be safe to assume that it would be one of the first to be modified if the situation in the Valencian region worsens.
