You will not be able to enter or leave any community between Dec. 23rd and Jan. 6th, except to visit relatives or close friends: {Translated from https://sevilla.abc.es} Updated: 02/12/2020 20:52h
The Government and the autonomous communities have agreed this Wednesday, within the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System (CISNS), to limit entry and exit in the autonomous communities and cities between December 23, 2020 and January 6, 2021, except in the Balearic and Canary Islands . In the rest of the territory, you can only travel to another community in the cases provided for by the state of alarm, such as going to the doctor, for work reasons or visiting a family member or close friend.
“The slogan this Christmas is to stay at home and carry out only those movements that are essential” , stressed the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, who indicated that “it will be the autonomous communities themselves that authorize the days on which these visits to relatives and friends ».
During Illa’s telematic meeting with the Health Councilors of the Autonomous Communities, it was also agreed that on the 24th, 25th, 31st and 1st the family reunions are restricted to a maximum of 10 people, except in the case of people who live at the same address and that a maximum of two cohabitation groups are not exceeded.
The minister explained that this “minimum agreement” has been reached with “a broad consensus” , however, he stressed that Madrid has not approved the perimeter closure of the communities. “It is the only community that has opposed mobility restrictions,” said Illa, who recalled that the agreement reached in the Interterritorial Council “is mandatory” and is not taken “for pleasure or to hinder anyone’s life.” .
As established in the ‘Adoption of Public Health Measures for Covid-19 for the celebration of the Christmas holidays’, it has been agreed to set the curfew at 1.30 am on December 24 and 25, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, although only to return home and “never” to go to other social encounters.
Specifically, the document states that in the Christmas period, the autonomous communities and autonomous cities will make effective the limitation of entry and exit in these territories, except for those displacements, adequately justified that occur for any of the reasons provided for in said article, as well as for trips to territories that are the usual place of residence of relatives or close friends of the displaced person, complying at all times with the limits to the permanence of groups of people that are applicable.

Britain OKs Pfizer vaccine and will begin shots within days: Britain’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency recommended the vaccine after clinical trials involving tens of thousands of volunteers showed it was 95% effective and turned up no serious side effects. The vaccine is still considered experimental while final testing is done.
Because of the limited initial supply, the first shots will be reserved for those most in danger, namely nursing home patients, the elderly and health care workers. Full article: https://apnews.com/article/uk-authorizes-vaccine-emergency-use-ea0170c978eb281a905866e5bd78bbdf
