Galicia in phase 3: management of de-climbing passes to the autonomous communities

If this new phase is advanced from June 8, Galicians could begin interprovincial mobility, although not between autonomous communities, a mobility that remains under the jurisdiction of the Government

On the verge of reaching phase 3, Galicia enters a decisive phase in the process of de-escalation towards the new normality. At this stage, the regional administrations will be responsible for managing the path towards the ‘new normality’, with the exception of mobility between provinces, although not between autonomous communities, which would not be authorized until the conclusion of the de-escalation, as endorsed by the decree approved last Tuesday by the Council of Ministers. Even so, the autonomies will have a significant margin of decision, taking into account that among the competencies acquired in phase 3 is the ability to decide its duration.

Health will have to assess before this Friday the technical documentation sent by the health authorities of each region so we will have to wait until the weekend to know if Galicia advances as a whole to phase 3. During this phase, the recommendation to use a mask and a social distance of two metres will be maintained to avoid contagion.
