    The government is considering limiting Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinners to six people

    The government’s measures to prevent a surge in coronavirus infections during the Christmas season include limiting Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinners to family members living under one roof. Otherwise, a maximum of six people per gathering is recommended. A curfew is also planned from 1:00 to 6:00, which would avoid the traditional New Year’s Eve celebrations, which are especially popular with young people. These two measures are set out in the draft ‘Proposals for public health measures in front of the covid-19 for the celebration of the Christmas holidays.

    Another point on which the focus is placed is the company Christmas lunches or dinners. These meetings may not have more than six people and it is strongly recommended that, if they do take place, they are held in outdoor areas and not inside establishments.

    With regard to the Three Kings procession, the Government considers that it should not be held, although it does not prohibit it. This measure is justified in that “they imply situations of high risk of transmission due to the high number of attendees, the intensity of the contact and the difficulty in reducing the associated risks”. Thus, it is recommended that if the parade is held, it should be adapted to the prevention measures. And static parades are proposed in places where access can be controlled.
