Despite the fact that today was the day chosen by the Consell to consider whether there was a relief from sanitary restrictions after the Easter bridge, it seems that they will bet on keeping most of these as they are.
With summer just around the corner, the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, remains cautious about the de-escalation. Weeks ago they announced that they would maintain the current restrictions until after Easter, instead of advancing these phases by fortnight as we used to. However, once that period is over, Puig's team will maintain a continuous position.
The main restrictions will remain the same until May 10, the date on which the state of alarm is expected to end and, in this way, the autonomies will lose their main asset to support their health measures. This means that, in the absence of what can be officially announced this afternoon, everything indicates that the curfew and the perimeter confinement will remain as until now until the aforementioned date.
What will change? What the Consell is studying is an extension of the opening hours of the hospitality industry and more relief from restrictions on the sector, such as more permissive regulations with capacity.
