The discotheques and leisure bars will be closed.Regarding trade, the capacity of the establishments will be restricted to 40 percent and there will be a priority service schedule for people over 65 years of age.

However, Secondary Education institutes will open their classrooms, starting in June, so that students in 2nd Bachillerato can voluntarily go to class to reinforce content for the EBAU tests.The common areas of hotels and tourist accommodation will also be reopened without exceeding a third of the capacity."The return to normality involves a relaxation of social measures and an increase in social interaction that could influence the transmission of the virus," emphasized the Minister of Health, Manuel Villegas.
