What businesses can I now buy from if I make a prior appointment? Do I now have to wear a mask in public transport? What's the general plan for easing of coronavirus lockdown in the near future in Catalonia? 

With the Spanish government's plan for a four-phase lifting of lockdown now in force - and Catalonia in Phase Zero from May 4th - there are many changes in the rules. Below, in the Catalan government's Civil Protection's FAQs document, you'll find many of the details This document was translated to English by ElNacional.cat (version dated Sunday 3rd May, 22hrs), and is usually updated on the Covid-19 information page of the Catalan interior ministry's website.  

As well, five separate articles can be consulted on specific areas affecting lockdown in Catalonia, based on the recent ministerial orders approved in Madrid:

The Catalan interior ministry's FAQs now cover many queries on these areas. Changes have been made to the following questions: 1, 2, 11, 17, 32, 33, 36, 37, 39, 42, 50, 61, 69, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 79, 80, 81, 82, 86, 89, 93, 94. 

Questions about Restrictions on Activities due to Covid-19 in Catalonia

A: Moving around 

1. What changes have been made to lockdown?
The state of alarm is still in effect and, therefore, the restrictions on movement outside your house are also still in effect. Trips outside are limited to very specific activities as described in the subsequent questions. 

From April 26th, children up to 13 years old have been allowed to go for walks accompanied by an adult, with certain limitations. From May 2nd, those aged 14 and over have been allowed to go for a walk and practice sports, with certain limitations. From May 4th, the reopening of retail and business premises closed to the public by the state of alarm has been authorized, by making a prior appointment.

The recommendation to companies and workers to use distance working and to apply reorganization measures to reduce the need to travel for their work still apply. People who are unable to comply with the conditions of distance working and must travel to carry out their jobs must take into account the issues set out in questions 50 and 107.

2. Can I move around within my town or city?
Mobility is limited to certain activities: to obtain food and essential pharmacy goods, and other goods if you make a prior appointment with the business, to go to the bank or insurance company, to travel to your workplace, to return to your usual place of residence, to care for children/minors, the elderly and others who are especially vulnerable.  Also, to go for a walk walking and practice sport. Always in accordance with the conditions established in each case, in terms of the timetable and number of people.

Worker commuting journeys to the workplace are no longer limited to essential services, as they had been between March 30th and April 10th. However, restrictions on the [normal] opening to the public of local retailers remain.

There are currently no municipalities in Catalonia with specific restrictions that are different to the rest.

3. Can I enter or leave Igualada, Òdena, Santa Margarida de Montbui or Vilanova del Camí?
Yes, because there is no longer any specific confinement in these municipalities. They are currently in the same situation as the rest of Catalonia in terms of mobility restrictions and activities.

4. Can I enter and leave other municipalities?
Yes, for the activities stated above (to obtain food and essential pharmacy goods, to travel to your workplace, to return to your usual place of residence, for health care or to care for people in need). The Catalan government demands that you limit this mobility as much as possible.

5. Is there a "mobility certificate" or official document that you need to carry with you in order to move around on foot or in a vehicle?
A self-responsibility certificate has been created so that you demonstrate that your journey complies with the restrictions under the State of Alarm. It can be obtained through the website of the Catalan interior ministry. and you can read about it here in English. It has been valid since Monday 23rd March. Additionally, workers have the right to have a certificate from their company stating that they are required to work. This is not limited to a specific certificate form.

6. Can I go to my second residence?
It is not permitted.

7. Can I go to my second residence if it is the usual place of residence of my partner?
Only those who have their usual place of residence there can go.

8. Can I travel to another location to transfer a child/minor to custody of someone else, whether it is nearby or far from my home?
It is permissible, but the best interests of the children must always come first. Judicial decisions on care, custody, visits and communications must be complied with. Parents and guardians need to take a responsible attitude to their parental care and reach the best agreements possible, taking into account the physical and emotional health of their children and the common good.

If you can't reach agreement and want to resolve the dispute through a mediation procedure, you can ask the Catalan government's Mediation Centre for Private Law to help you (centremediacio.dj@gencat.cat). It will designate a mediator to help you find a solution to your conflict.

For the municipalities of Igualada, Òdena, Santa Margarida de Montbui and Vilanova del Camí, entering and leaving these towns exit is now allowed under the same conditions as for all other municipalities in Catalonia.

9. Can I go shopping with children/minors who are in my care charge if there is no one else at home?

10. I am responsible for a family member with a disability, an Autism Spectrum Disorder or another condition who needs to go outside. Can I do this?
If it is essential to do so by prescription of a health or social professional or the Education department, carry the disability certificate and/or prescription of the professional with you. As well as accompanying the person, he/she can go outside individually if the person has autonomy.
