THE regional government of Valencia has announced new health rules designed to help combat the spread of Covid-19 – including extending the night curfew to more communities.

Ximo Puig, the Valencia president, said restrictions scheduled to expire on Monday July 26 would remain in force until at least August 16.

And the number of municipalities affected by the 01.00 to 06.00 nightly curfew will be increased, around half the region will now be subject to the measure if the move gets legal blessing.

Closing time for bars, cafes and restaurants remains at 00.30 with a midnight limit on sales, while nightclubs can only open as a bar or restaurant. The limit on social gatherings remains at 10 people.
