Q & A. What communities have decreed the closure?
The Valencian Community will be confined to the perimeter for a week starting at noon this Friday, October 30.
This has been announced by the president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, who has assured that in these seven days the entry and exit of the autonomous territory will be prohibited except for justified reasons such as work or care for dependents.
Of course, within the Community itself, citizens may continue to move freely.

Puig has justified these "fine surgery" measures because "we couldn't wait any longer."
The Valencian president has also pointed out to the Community of Madrid when criticizing "the inaction and the confusion that some governments are generating".
"There has been a lot of noise in the last few hours and that noise has to be stopped," he stressed.
In addition, in 28 municipalities of the three provinces in which "sustained community transmission" has been detected, additional containment measures will be adopted to reduce the incidence of the virus.
Four of them had already been applying them and will keep them for another two weeks: Elche and Orihuela, where according to the Minister of Health, Ana Barceló, the situation has worsened in the last 10 days;
and Guadassuar and Onda, in which a stabilization in infections has been detected, although not a decrease.
The rest of the towns in which "transitory" measures will also be applied to halt transmission are Morella, Moles and Vinarós in Castellón;
Algemesí in Valencia and Crevillent, Elda, Ibi, Muro d'Alcoi, Petrer, Pinoso and the 18 municipalities of the Orihuela health department.
