The Valencian Community Enters Phase 2 Of De-escalation: What We Can and Can’t Do

With the Valencian community entering phase 2 of de-escalation today on Monday the 1st of June, several restrictions are lifted or relaxed. These include the end of exercise slots, which is a great relief for a large part of the population. However, phase 2 exercise slots continue for over 70s and vulnerable people, who shall keep the slots of 10.00 to 12.00 hours and from 19.00 to 20.00 hours. Other citizens are asked to respect this rule and schedule their exercise at different times during the day.

As well as the end of exercise slots, the following changes apply:

  • Bars and restaurants open to 40% of their capacity for table service both inside and out, as long as the 2 metre safety distance is maintained. Ordering or standing at the bar is not permitted.
