The TSJC will decide this Thursday on the curfew and the restriction on meetings

The Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) will decide in all probability this Thursday if it endorses the request of the Generalitat to apply the touch curfew in municipalities with more than 10,000 inhabitants whose incidence of covid is above 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, as well as the prohibition of meetings of more than 10 people. The high court will only study these two measures when affecting fundamental rights. The resolution would have a validity, in principle, of 15 days, but the Govern does not rule out that it lasts longer.

The curfew from 1 to 6 in the morning will affect, in the event that the Catalan high court approves it, 116 localities of Catalonia, to which another nine 'island municipalities' will be added, nuclei that surround populations with a high incidence to prevent the spread of the virus. That is, it will be applied in 125 Catalan municipalities.

The Catalan Executive also approved Other restrictions, such as the closure of nightlife, the limitation of capacity in bars and restaurants to 50% inside (the terraces will continue to 100%) and the reduction of capacity to 70% in shops, federated sports, gyms and culture. These measures do not need judicial endorsement. However, some of them will reach the hands of the judges if the nightlife entrepreneurs file a class action lawsuit, as they announced this Tuesday.

And we have to preserve this as well.” In addition, he called on all people vaccinated with AstraZeneca to get the third dose.
