The stricter measures brought in by the Junta de Andalucía on 10 November, and which continue until 10 December, include the restriction of movement across municipal boundaries throughout Andalucía, as well as bringing the curfew earlier to 10pm and ordering the closure of all non-essential business at 6pm.
There are a number of exceptions however. Movement between towns and villages across municipal boundaries is permitted in the following cases:
- To attend health centres, hospitals and other healthcare services.
- Work: to meet professional, business, insititutional or legal obligations.
- School: To go to school, college, university and other educational centres, including infant schools.
- Travelling home: to return to a habitual or family residence.
- Carers: To assist or care for the elderly, children, people with disabilities, or those especially vulnerable.
- To travel to banks, insurance offices or petrol stations in adjacent territories.
- For required or urgent procedures at public, judicial or notary institutions.
- Renovation of permits and official documentation, as well as other administrative procedures that cannot be postponed.
- To sit exams or official tests that cannot be postponed.
- In the case of a situation of necessity or force majeure.
- Any other activity of a similiar nature properly accredited.
If you need to cross a municipal border to carry out any of the above activities, you must be able to justify this when stopped by the security forces in order to avoid being fined.
