Can you leave or enter Madrid during the All Saints bridge?

No. The Community of Madrid established this Thursday the

perimeter closure

throughout the region from 00:00 this Friday to 00:00 on Tuesday, November 3.

I mean, right now,

you can neither leave nor enter

except for justified reasons.

) Yes, you can go through the Community of Madrid if your final destination is outside of it and you come from unconfined regions and go to unconfined regions.

And will the same happen on the La Almudena bridge?

That is the intention of the Government of

Isabel Diaz Ayuso

, but the Executive of

Pedro Sanchez

will have to give you permission to

close perimeter

the community in the

La Almudena Bridge

as he has done this time.

We will have to be aware of the last hour (you can follow it


) next week to find out what decision is made about it.

And within Madrid, who can move freely now?

All those Madrilenians who do not live in some of the

basic health zones

confined by the regional government.

Until now,

they are 32

, but as of Monday

another three are added

decreed by the Executive of Pedro Sánchez, and

does not allow any movement in the streets

in that strip.

What if I go to dinner at the house of a family member or friend and it gets late?

The Community does not now prohibit

social or family gatherings

overnight (this has also changed recently).

The ideal is to advance the dinner time to be at home at 00.00, but if it is late there is no rule that prevents you from spending the night at the home of a friend or relative.


about meetings is that they can be

a maximum of six people

, either inside a home or outdoors.

And that affects all the citizens of Madrid. Even so, the regional government insists that

leave home as little as possible

and those meetings are also reduced to contain the virus.

If I live in one of those 35 restricted areas, what can I and what can't I do?

Actually, you can lead a normal life but without leaving those areas for


that are not basic or of major cause.

That is, as we have detailed at the beginning, you can go out to work, to study, to take care of a minor or a dependent, to carry out administrative or judicial procedures that cannot wait or any other justification of serious cause.


within the perimeter of your area, you can move freely


What you could not, for example, is go to a shopping center, the cinema or a restaurant outside your area, nor go to visit a family member or friend who lives outside of it.

How long will these limitations remain active?

The restrictions have

a minimum duration of 14 days

, although depending on the evolution of the cases in each of the areas, the regional government could expand it another 14. Initially, in the 32 areas confined last Monday, the restrictions would end on November 8, and the three included this Friday, November 15.

If the holy field is outside your

However, residents who are not confined will be able to go to cemeteries even if they are in areas with limitations, as is the case of
