Spain’s government will propose a six-person limit on family reunions over the Christmas period.
A draft proposal suggest the ‘rule of 6’ will be enforced for both Christmas and New Year – called Nochebuena and Nochevieja, respectively, in Spain.
A nighttime curfew from 01:00 until 06:00 is also on the table, leading press agency Europa Press reports.
The government will recommend that only members of the same household celebrate social or family reunions over the two festive days.
If someone not from the same household is present, any reunion may not hold more than six people.
