Update 29thApril

Yesterday the Spanish Prime Minister announced the following relaxations of the stringent lockdown that has been in force since 14thMarch:

What reopens when?

  • Small businesses and hotels can open from 11 May, but social distancing will remain in force
  • Though some schools will reopen in late May, most will stay closed until the new term begins in September.
  • Restaurants can start opening their terraces from mid-May, but they must not be more than 30% full during the first phase 
  • Religious services can resume on a limited basis from 11 May, at no more than one third of the building’s capacity
  • Theatres and cinemas will reopen from late May, but again must be no more than a third full
  • Shops can open at half capacity from around the end of June, with two metres (6ft) between shoppers
  • Beaches are expected to reopen in late June

Each phase of the de-escalation plan will last at least two weeks, and in the best-case scenario, the process will last eight weeks in all of Spain

From the current information at hand it is looking likely that some timeshare resorts may be opening by May 11th, this of course is subject to confirmation. Even if this is the case, this phase of relaxation will be subject to public and communal areas remaining closed. The President of the Spanish Hotels Association said in the press this morning that“It is all well and good opening hotels but with inter region and inter country travel restrictions and no flights who will book?”

TCA will of course keep our readers informed as and when any concrete news is forthcoming.
