The High Court of Justice of Navarre has once again authorised the application of the Provincial Government to extend the night curfew. In this way, it will be valid until next Thursday, September 2, between 01:00 and 06:00 on weekends and the days on which would correspond the celebration of the patron saint festivities, which have been suspended as a result of the coronavirus.
The High Court of Justice of Navarre has considered the measure as “appropriate”, “necessary” and “proportionate”. However, they warned that, given the epidemiological and vaccination data, “a more detailed and specific allegation and justification by the administration of the proposed measures restricting fundamental rights will be necessary”.
The Department of Public Prosecutions has not objected to the authorization of the curfew, since it considers that it “continues to be necessary” because of the existing contagion data. The Community has recorded 94 new cases of coronavirus, the second day that remains below 100 cases of infection, after 87 positive cases were reported last Sunday, 26 August.
In addition, they’ve had to mourn the deaths of two people in the past 24 hours, bringing the number of deaths since the pandemic had begun to 1,213.
The restrictions in Navarre vary depending on the level of alert in which the municipality is located. Those who are at level 4, that is, very high, will be subjected to a perimeter confinement and a curfew between 23:00 and 06:00 (currently, none is in place). The municipalities of level 3, high, will be subject to the curfew that the Justice has authorized until next September 2 between 01:00 and 06:00.
The other levels do not include within their measures time restrictions, but they do include limitations on the number of people per meeting. On level two, no more than 8 people from 3 different bubbles can meet. At level 1, the lowest level, no more than 15 to 25 people can gather in public.
